Please welcome arts educator Anna Efanova to EdSpace. She recently participated in a KQED Education workshop where we spent a day at MoAD learning about historical representation through art and film, and later created short films at KQED about missing voices or stories in history. Anna created a film about some important female artists that she wanted to introduce to her students.
From Anna Efanova: We often hear and talk about bringing technology into the classroom. KQED does exactly that by offering workshops for educators that inspire and teach them how to enhance their lessons with technology. I have been looking for other possibilities to present visuals about the artists, and here was an opportunity to learn how to use iMovie.
The workshop began with an inspirational and thought provoking tour of the MOAD museum and their exhibition, COLLECTED: Stories of Acquisition and Reclamation. We explored highlights from personal collections of books, posters and other memorabilia about the culture and history of African Americans.
