Learning English, Discovering Art and Using Modern Web 2.0 Tools and enhancing Learning among Learners and Educators
Patricia Macgowan shared these interesting links in her mail to the educators of Edweb. I found some which are worth sharing as they are related to the world of Art and also because in most schools English Language Teachers work together with Art Teachers.
Google Art Project and how it works
Web links related to Art and Learning online
VISITING SOME MUSEUMS ONLINE
Learning about CANTERBURY CATHEDRAL
Famous Painters: CARAVAGGIO
The documents online provide a high level of English in some cases and thus videos could be assigned as homework to the students doing Art in English after teachers have worked on the content and language input . Edpuzzle or any type of editors for videos could be used to enhance the students' listening and viewing comprehension.
As a follow -up activitiy students could write and present a text with the information provided in the videos.
Learning by doing while listening, watching, reflecting and........visiting some museums abroad. This could be an example of activities which Teachers of English and Teachers of Art might do together.
