Abstract

Abstract: Internet and multimedia technologies emphasize the importance of visual literacy and require a working knowledge of art, design, and technology skills in order to communicate effectively in the 21st Century. Visual literacy is not a common topic in teacher education, although research shows that nonlinguistic representations and collaborative learning increase achievement for all students across the curriculum. If teachers are going to develop visual literacy skills in their students, they need knowledge, training, and practice to incorporate arts and technology across the curriculum. This presentation demonstrates the art of clay animation as a visual communication tool and shares how it is being incorporated into teacher education at Wichita State University, Wichita, Kansas.
