I am a visual arts teacher living in North Western Ontario. I wanted to try to challenge myself by beginning a blog that would keep me accountable as I begin a new semester. My goal is to try new activities in the classroom in order to refresh my learning environment, but I don’t want to limit the changes to projects. Ideally, my interest in new resources such as podcasts, blogging, virtual tours and even online portfolios will spark the beginning of a metamorphosis in my curriculum design.
Hopefully these changes will benefit my students, whose educational experiences can oftentimes determine whether or not they will invest in their schooling… and themselves.
**Guiding questions: If I was a student in my class, what would I need? What would my experience be like?
