Introducing Artsonia Classroom Mode: Student-Generated Digital Portfolios
November 6, 2017 | 7-8 pm ET
Join Tiffany Rahn and Jim Meyers as they lead an overview of Classroom Mode, the simple way for students to create their own digital portfolios in Artsonia. Learn how these student portfolios can also be used for assessment, classroom management, art program fundraising, and more!
Classroom Mode bypasses the task of art teachers taking thousands of photographs of artwork each year for publication, and instead provides a hands-on opportunity for students to learn about photography, curating their own portfolio, and creating thoughtful titles and artist statements.
Artsonia is world’s largest online student art museum, offering free, educational and fundraising programs for schools, teachers, and parents. Each year, thousands of art teachers nationwide showcase their students’ artwork online at www.artsonia.com.
