GiggleIT Visual Literacy Project




November 1, 2010

Institution ArtsConnectEd


The GiggleIT Project's 2011 theme for creative international online literacy is,

"Through our window - the colours of our land".

Here is a selection of art works that present ideas for creating literary works and visual literacy works on the theme above.

This theme is based on the following aims:

Students explore their place in a diverse world through a personal cultural lens.

Students will explore the meaning of Visual Literacy.

Students will create a personal logo and a haiku poem on the theme:

"Through our window - the colours of our land".

Students will experiment and explore a variety of ICT.

Look through these artworks for ideas and think about:

1. Do any of these visual works remind you of anything in your world?

2. Do the colours make you feel inspired? How DO the colours affect you?

3. Is there one special artwork that you like or can use to create a colour scheme for your logo?

Let's go back to the voicethread to learn more about colour and feelings.

 This project is taking part in "ArtsConnectEd iPad Challenge #2".
