Doink and Artful Artsy Amy Education Blog!
Thank you so much to Ms. Amy for her incredible blog post and even more incredible animation of what Teachers do during Summer Vacation. (We always wanted to know!) We love her blog called Artful Artsy Amy here is the link.
As Ms Amy says:
Kiddos need all the positive empowerment they can get. I think that is, perhaps, my biggest reason for incorporating animation and technology into the classroom: empowerment. Many of my students love gaming and viewing animation and fantasize about “how cool” it would be to “do that when they grow up.” Yet, free (free!) technology is so advanced that they can do it now…And, then have a great foundational skill to build on later for a possible career. Additionally, they, as digital natives, learn new technology more speedily and use new technology more effectively than I do; they teach me so much.
We love seeing Doink in the classroom and having such amazing teachers like Ms. Amy use our tools!
