Professor Barbara Chira Uses iPads to Explore, Create and Document

03/03/12  |  Posted by Scott Ligon  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - News

The photo above is a part of student Sabrina Thi's web journal, created for Professor Barbara Chira's Charette class, a project-based design class.  Professor Chira has done some great things with iPads in her classes as part of the Digital Canvas Initiative at the Cleveland Institute of Art. In her classes, Professor Chira has utilized the iPad to explore, refine, document and support the creative process. She's also taken full advantage of the portable and intuitive nature of the iPads to help students to film and edit videos that are poignant, intimate, surprising and informative. According to Professor Chira, the students were able to make  powerful works that never would have been created without  the iPads. Above: Professor Chira critiques student mind-maps created using apps on the iPad. Mind-mapping is a way to explore concept connections and refine the creative process. Below: a video filmed and edited on the iPad, created by student Maria Rouzzo. Maria has recently been recruited to write for this blog. Welcome, Maria! We're glad you're here! We'll publish video interviews with Professor Chira and Maria in the near future.
