Digital Editing and Art Appreciation

0

IVLA 2014 

► Holly Hey (Associate Professor, Department of Theatre and Film, University of Toledo, Toledo, OH)

Teaching objective skills to control digital editing systems typically generates exchanges antithetical to creativity. I deepen this conversation and foster aesthetic sensibility by using the computer to create subjective experience.

Personal Narratives in Public Places: Considering Space and Self in a Digital Age

0

IVLA 2014 

Presenter:
► Ben Malczewski (Humanities Department Manager for the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library, Toledo, OH)

Our buildings and rooms are 3-dimensional texts. We’ll consider our relationship with our physical surroundings and objects from a multidisciplinary perspective (behavioral/neurological, etc.) and reflect on their roles in creating experience and memory, as well as inward/outward conceptualizations of identity, self, and community. We’ll then graduate this idea to address how we personally and publically embrace a technological shift (from analog to digital) and will undergo a further content evolution to “dynamic.” We’ll examine how concepts such as “dialectal design” and the “occasioning of space” play vital roles in capturing and projecting the essence of “self” in our homes and public places.

The “Feelie” Sculpture Experience (Hands On Workshop)

IVLA 2014 

► Karen Roderick-Lingeman (Senior Lecturer 2D-Studies – Ceramics, Art Education, University of Toledo, Toledo, OH)

The concepts of working in-the-round where the final sculpture does not have a front/back/top/bottom or sides, but is completely in-the-round with all areas of surface and form being explored is very unique. This is especially true when working in clay. The emphasis is on “ook & feel” line, shape, texture, and form in their most pure sense when sculpting a non-objective three-dimensional object.
Curriculum standards specifically relate to working in a three-dimensional format as well as focusing on the core elements of art in a non-representational approach.

Seeing Things: Visual Rhetoric and Our Wordless Stories

0

IVLA 2014 

Presenter:
►Les Loncharich (Assistant Professor, Professional and Technical Writing, Department of Writing & Linguistics, Georgia Southern University, Statesboro, GA)

In this session, I consider intersections, demonstrated with everyday objects, between writing as inscription and visual composition. The relationship between artifact forms and semiotic content in arrangements of everyday objects, parallels similarities between the Gestalt Theories and semantic arrangement of words and letters. As a form of non-alphabetic writing in mundane circumstances, I explore these everyday visual practices through genre theory, which is recurrent social action. I consider these everyday artifacts as tools, in activity systems, which mediate between the composer-producer and a number of social outcomes, such as storytelling, identity building, community formation, and help in making our way in the world.

Using universal design, user studies, and semantic analysis methods, we are developing icons for the 42 concepts in the system. The use of color and form to communicate is of prime importance. Prototypes of the icons will be presented and discussed.

Visual Portrait: Holistic Lessons of an Educator at Mid Career

0

IVLA 2014

Presenter:
► Karen F. Tardrew (IVLA Board Member; Ed. D. – Associate Professor, Teaching, Learning & Assessment, National College of Education, National Louis University, Chicago, IL)

This year the researcher accomplished twenty years of teaching teachers at the University level. Educators bring into the classroom a personal history and a set of inclinations that lead them to specific strategies, not just for survival but also for thriving. Throughout a professional lifetime, educators develop a range of strategies that included intellectual, emotional, artistic, and spiritual practices (Palmer, 1990).

Due to policy changes, the context of teacher education has significantly transformed in recent years. I will explore the important intersection of transformative professional development as it relates to wholeness and resiliency of educators. My analysis of the data highlights that there is not a single answer to how a teacher uses holistic and mindful practices to maintain professional and personal resiliency. With the addition of mindful practices, there was an achievement of personally relevant goals, and enhanced ability to cope with the demands of teaching in the current context (Gold, Smith, Hopper, Herne & Tansey, 2010).

The research will be presented in the form of “visual metaphors” through an interactive reader’s theater presentation. The portraits are not merely a collection of narratives and photos but are part of my analysis. The narrative portraits are designed to reveal what I believe are important dimensions of how a teacher enacts his or her whole being in work with students and colleagues. Collectively, these visual metaphors make a statement about what the work of a “whole and mindful” teacher embodies.

You Want Me to Make a What?

IVLA 2014

Presenters:
► Cristine G. Goldberg (Adjunct Professor, University of the Cumberlands, College of Education, Williamsburg, KY)
► Danilo M. Baylen (Professor of Instructional Technology and School Library Media, ETF Department, College of Education, University of West Georgia, Carrollton, GA)

Teachers always need good ideas to engage students and enhance their learning. This paper session will demonstrate to K-12 teachers and higher education faculty how to use multiple technology-based tools in creating an e-book that delivers content and meets a variety of standards. The experience will also facilitate the development of digital literacy skills expected in 21st century classrooms. Participants will leave with ideas on how to make their own e-books that are appropriate for their students or in collaboration with older students and/or adults to support multi-generational activities. The presentation will not only describe the project but also showcase examples of student-produced e-books.

A Dialogue with Contemporary Art

IVLA 2014

Presenter:
► Rachel Shalita (Hamidrasha – School of Art and Art Teachers, Beit-Berl Academic College, Beit-Berl, Israel)

“Dialogue with Art” is a model for reading contemporary art with non-professional public – children as well as adults. This model encourages viewers to find for themselves the “aboutness” of the work of art, and involve themselves in a most exciting process of interpretation, mainly through deep observation and a group share. The 6 stages of this model will be presented, using contemporary works of art as examples.

Truth in Photography: Society and Technology Hash It Out

0

IVLA 2014

Published on 8 Dec 2014

Presenter:
► Scott McMaster (Art Education Department, Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec)

Since the 19th century, photography has often been heralded as the only medium capable of capturing an ‘objective truth’; chronicling both everyday life and crucial turning points in human history, ongoing to this day. The rise of digital technologies and photo-manipulation has thrown this reality into question, yet those familiar with photographic history are acutely aware that photography’s relationship with truth has always been, precarious at best. Despite this knowledge and in the face of countless scams, scandals and social media, people are still inclined to accept the billions of images uploaded to the web each year at face value; rarely questioning their motives, creators or impact. This presentation takes a brief look through the history of photography from the false impressions of daguerreotypes, 60’s montage and photojournalism to present day digital manipulations in advertising in an attempt to open up a dialogue between students, visual culture and our notions of ‘truth & reality.’
