Meet the Students! 6.29.11 at ISTE

Please come and meet the students who have worked so diligently to create the multi-media mural projection!  On Wednesday, June 29th, the students from SCH Academy and the Philadelphia Mural Arts Program will present at ISTE from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM.  The students will demonstrate the tools they learned and used to create the components of the projection including, GarageBand, Motion and Final Cut Pro.  They will happily share the process of planning, of meeting with community members, of brainstorming, and collaborating.  You can find them at PACC Broad St Atrium, Table: 1.


Connection with The International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE)– Ellen Fishman-Johnson

Once we began the Mural in Motion project we needed to begin dialogue with ISTE so we could work together to present this exciting piece to the attendees of the ISTE conference at the end of June.  The conference draws over 15,000 educators from all over the world and is a hotbed of ideas for forward thinking educators.   I had a lot of wonderful conversations with the co-director of the Special Interest Group for Art Educators (SIGAE) co-headed by Jaime Kasper(Fine Arts and Humanities Advisor for the Pennsylvania Department of Education) at the last ISTE conference and she helped me get in touch with the ISTE administration.  I was very thrilled when Anita McAnear the Program Chair for ISTE called to find out about the project.  She has been incredibly supportive of this project and helped us get a description in the program and a Student Showcase for the students to present their work.  We also coordinated the start of the mural so it would coincide with the end of the Keynote address on Sunday June 26th around 8:30.
