Creative Technology Leadership Seminar: Project Implementation (Spring 2014)
Art Educator Programs
Many arts educators have envisioned creative technology projects that they have not had the time, expertise, or support to pursue. This class will guide participants through the successful implementation of creative technology projects to be carried out in their professional or artistic communities.
By applying the design thinking process, participants will identify an opportunity, brainstorm, research, refine, and implement creative technology projects with a real world focus in a collaborative, experiential and supported learning environment.
Projects will be designed from the interests of the individual participants, but could range from the creation of 2.0 art communities, digital arts investigation and applications, new teaching opportunities with the computer or iPad, to stop-motion and filmmaking in the classroom, and more.
This class is designed to help recognize and foster technologically-advanced advocates of the arts, to assist with the realization of creative technology projects, and as an investigation of funding opportunities for individual or collaborative projects. Projects are implemented in participants’ communities and will be presented in an MCAD gallery or auditorium setting. This is a hybrid class, designed with the art educator and teaching artist in mind, meeting five alternating Saturday mornings, supported by a flexible online component between meetings.
This seminar will not teach specific software applications or programs, but support participants’ use of their chosen technologies in their practice. Some examples might be: Adobe Creative Suite, digital photography or video, web design or blogs, Google Apps, Social Media, etc. The Learning Center is available for technology support. / Open to students ages 18 and above.
What to Bring: Laptop computer or tablet; sketchbook; favorite writing or drawing utensils. / Students should anticipate additional costs for the purchase of individual project specific supplies and materials. / A complete list of suggested materials will be discussed during the first class meeting.
