I’m no longer blogging here…

May 9, 2011

I’ve decided it doesn’t make much sense anymore to have two separate blogs for what I blog about, so I’ll only be blogging here from now on. I’ve amalgamated both blogs, so all the posts from here will all be included on the other blog, should anyone need to find anything!

see you on the other side…


Learning Art in the Digital Age

April 19, 2011

Last year, Su Ballard and I wrote up a discussion we had facilitated at the previous year’s Aotearoa New Zealand Association of Art Educators (ANZAAE) Conference, held at the Dunedin School of Art and had it published in 20th edition of the ANZAAE journal.

Having had the gap of time between the conference and the writing gave us a chance to reflect on the discussion in light of other research we had continued to do around the teaching and learning of digital media in an art culture and context. For example, at the time of writing we were also developing our Digital Literacy in Art Publication Website with Morgan Oliver.

Digital Literacy in Art

March 18, 2011

This is  a project I did last year with Su Ballard and Morgan Oliver, funded by Ako Aotearoa. It’s a website that collates our research and experience teaching a paper called Digital Literacy at the Dunedin School of Art. The design of the website (by Morgan Oliver | BLACKARTS) mimics some of the learning strategies that are used in the paper.

We worked really well as a team and I’d totally do projects with these people again! Su created this amazing glossary that can be accessed at the same time as the rest of the information, which really adds an extra dimension to the project, highlighting the type of language we use both in digital dallying and in education.

Morgan was really great at working with us about our ideas for the design, emulating the ways that we interact with digital media and came up with this beautiful crystal metaphor, that unfolds and grows as we gain more knowledge, and discover the site.

I’ve done a seminar at Otago Polytechnic introducing the site and got some good feedback…but feel free to give me more!
