Your child might have participated in an interactive Art and IT project today and may have returned home with a ceramic bird. It is now theirs to keep! Each bird was part of an interactive Art and IT installation within the school grounds. ‘What part is the art?’ was a key theme to this installation. With the use of a scannable (QR) code, students were able to learn that they could take and keep a piece (bird.) The QR link on the bird invites students to interactively consider such questions as ‘Which part is the art? Making, viewing or taking?’ We would ask that you encourage your child to engage by responding to the QR link or opening this Google Document and show where the birds ‘flew’ to by adding a picture to the following site: https://padlet.com/Mr_Lindblad/Finderskeepers.
