The Poetics App and Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Poetics app was released in the App Store as an artwork focused on visual poetry, spreading around the world and used in various art exhibitions and poetry projects by its creator.  Then a suprise twist occurred.  Teachers began downloading the app and using it in the classroom across a wide range of academic subjects and grade levels, including special needs.  

This presentation shares the story of how art, poetry, education and literacy met through the creation of an app artwork, including research and development now underway with professors at Columbia Teacher's College and NYU, focused on the app, arts-centered learning, and multimodal literacy.
