Technology Workshop

August 25, 2011

Arts teachers creating!

I love it when arts teachers get together and immediately are engaged in learning. The environment is buzzing, learning from the facilitator, from each other, and from themselves. Playing, experimenting, going places they never thought they’d go. Learning at its best!

In response to the arts assessment institute evaluations the teacher leaders had the opportunity to learn more about technology. Technology was one of three topics that we focused on at the arts institute during the first week in August at Maine College of Art. Ten of the teacher leaders attended the all day session at Troy Howard Middle School in Belfast this past Monday.

Ann Marie Hutton and Tim Hart from MLTI facilitated the professional development opportunity by  sharing tips, tricks and basics of omniGraffle, museScore, Acorn, iPhoto, and iTunes. Participants were appreciative of another opportunity to expand their knowledge, share ideas, ask questions, and learn from each other.

The 18 arts teacher leaders are busy planning their workshops for the statewide arts education conference being held on October 7th at USM, Portland. Detailed information will be available in the near future. Watch the blog for the information.
