Ed Tech Inquiry Statement

How can social media be successfully incorporated in an art classroom?

Approach: Delve into how social media, particularly Instagram and Pinterest, can be utilized as resources for artistic inspiration, spaces for critique and collaboration, and showcase art in a visual timeline/archive format.

Experts and collaborators:
Sophia Buddenhagen, my high school art and Painting teacher
Alexandra Robinson, my Drawing II professor
– Wendy Dooldeniya, Travis High School art and AP Photography teacher
Gayle Allen, blogger, writer, entrepreneur

Format: The final format will be a comprehensive blog post detailing the information I have gathered. For the interviews, I’ll meet with Ms. Dooldeniya (and her students) and Alex in person. Since Ms. B is in Houston, I’ll  interview her via email.
