This is an interesting video about Mosman High School using online learning in the Visual Arts classroom using Edmodo. I particularly like the idea that online spaces give students who usually would not have a ‘classroom voice’ a chance to have their say simultaneously via an online classroom. I also like the idea of a short ‘Do Now’ online task to begin the lesson, or perhaps even a short homework task each week. As Ms McCarthy suggests in the video, the teacher must be on board with this online technology, and must continue to try to make it a successful, engaging online space, as well as provide classroom support, consolidation of knowledge and closure for the learning experience.
