  • Anne Pilon


The introduction of mobile computing devices in high schools has significantly changed the classroom dynamic, and the way students make art. Pilon discusses the pedagogical implications, benefits, and challenges of using mobile technology as a tool to create, enhance, and share images—working in collaboration with peers in the art classroom. Pilon offers strategies for incorporating digital tools in art assignments and how students learn digital literacy, responsible digital citizenship, image analysis, and digital documentation through and with mobile devices.
