Colour your teaching

If the only thing you do is watch this video, you have done well. It speaks for itself and is beautiful. When my daughter was at art school, one of the first assignments they had, was to build an installation which focussed on one colour. Hers happened to be green. As part of her audience experience she wanted to make a green cake. She went outside and got some fuchsia leaves and asked me if I could make green chocolate leaves to go on her cake like the ones she had chosen. I washed the leaves , dried them and painted them with green chocolate. When her cake was made we peeled off the real leaves and had the chocolate ones for her to decorate the cake. She then took a photo of it on some little camera around at the time which printed up a small photo of the cake she had baked. It was not only a good mother and daughter moment, it was a good teaching a learning moment. I learned that if you focussed on one thing and explored it from all angles it was a deeply satisfying and inspirational way to learn. From then on I applied that in my classroom. With technology you can focus on one thing from all sorts of angles. You can teach content in multimodal ways and bring about a deeper understanding and a much better sense of what the learning is about. Looking at teaching through an artist’s lens means you have the opportunity to truly engage someone’s mind and creativity by immersing them through studied focus which then builds on itself.

100% focus

keynote Nothing wrong with KeyNote or PowerPoint. Use them to match your needs. What do year 9s need first thing Thursday morning? KeyNote. It sparkles, it bubbles – it doesn’t just blandly sit there . I was on a mission. I had a verb to conjugate . I created the KeyNote presentation so we would look at the verb subjects first and then the conjugated form of the verb.One person of the verb at a time. Each word sparkled, bubbled, caught of fire or had firework explosions and the students loved it and loved their verb and learned really quickly. They even said I had done well. There was nothing to detract or distract and so we got through the verb quickly and then could make up sentences on each part of the verb and I could write them on top of the presentation.  There was plenty of room on the slide presentation for this contextual learning. We did so well we had half an hour spare to spend on our language learning site. 100% focus increases productivity!
