RESIDENCY GOALS

Students and teachers will explore design thinking and the experiential nature of collaboration.

Students will begin with a problem then explore potential solutions, developing ways to test ideas.

Creativity will be a widely applicable approach to solving problems together.

We will use the A as an entry into STEAM learning.

BIO

My teaching style varies and adjusts to the age of the learners and what we are trying to achieve together. I use experiential learning and project based techniques. I am most interested in the creative process and helping students be less focused on the end product. I co-create learning to spark creativity, growth, problem-solving and positive change.

WORK WITH STUDENTS

Co-created a robotic dinosaur, Artosaur, with a team of artists, engineers, and high school robotics team members. The mobile community art project then went out to promote art in the city. Constructed of welded steel wire covered in painted duct tape.

 

Designed a series of 12 projects aligned with the weekly themes of an evening market. We used different kinds of die cut paper and explored a range of techniques to alter the surfaces. Several projects also incorporated electronic components to add flashing lights and movement.

CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS

I design experiences to meet the curriculum needs of the desired subjects. I select materials and media that help students grasp learning in different ways. This uses Science: Engineering Design.
