Virginia Tech, School of EducationWebinar March 2013
Graduate course listed in different schools at VT; transdisciplinary learning
To use creative technologies to create a product of the arts that can be used to teach science.
Change over Time (C/T) challenges students to creatively represent learning in a tangible form; through the process of creating paper art sculptures to represent abstract concepts. C/T, a project-based learning activity, encourages students to think critically and creatively as they discover firsthand how art and science inform each other
Mae Jemison – astronaut, doctor, art collector, and dancer– advocates for integration of art and science. Jemison calls on educators to teach both art and science, and to create bold thinkers through teaching intuition and logic.
Mae Jemison’s TED Talk
Let’s get started:You will need the small white piece of paper, black construction paper, and iPad/iPod Touch/iPhone for the next part
You only get one piece of paper for the entire activity!
To be used as a photo backdrop (at least 8.5”x11”)
CoT Kit comes with easy-to-use photo backdrops
Note: The CoT kit comes with 5 iPod Touches, with the app already downloaded
We will be using the small white piece of paper to show what we are “visualizing”
The black piece of paper will be used as a photo backdrop
Cannot use any other tools
To document the process, we will take pictures of our sculptures, which will then be used to create a time-lapse video (using the iMotion HD app)
Using the iMotion HD iPod App
Find and press the iMotion HD icon.
Select “new movie”.
Make sure manual is selected for options shown toward the bottom of the screen. Enter a movie title if desired (ie: Team Awesome, Fab Four, etc).
Press start to begin capturing videos.
Position the iPod until the screen is in the desired area and press the capture button to take a picture of the art.
Important: Do not press the stop button until you are finished with the video series. I will tell you when to press stop.

After capturing the number of desired images, press the stop button twice to stop capturing images.
The app will create a time-lapse video.
To delete a frame from the movie, press the tools button to display the tool interface. Use the rewind or forward options to reach the desired image to delete. Press the delete button (the icon of a polaroid picture with a minus sign) to remove the frame.
