This is a recording of Wesley Fryer’s after-school workshop for teachers at Independence Elementary School in Yukon, Oklahoma, on September 4, 2014. The workshop title was “Narrated Art Projects with AudioBoo Using iPads.” The session description was: Draw a picture or take a picture, and then record your voice with a website or app which shares your recording with your image. Narrated Art Projects provide excellent opportunities to practice meta-cognition, use nonlinguistic representation to boost student achievement, and improve oral communication skills. In this workshop we’ll view and discuss examples of student-created narrated art, and also create examples together in the session. Websites like AudioBoo and SoundCloud offer cloud-based audio recording and sharing using free smartphone applications as well as browser-based interfaces. Apps like ShowMe and Draw & Tell for iPad can streamline the creation and sharing of narrated art. Learn how narrated art projects can become important elements in students’ digital portfolios.” More resources related to Narrated Art and Narrated Photo projects are available on Mapping Media t othe Curriculum. Student examples shared at the start of the workshop included:
