How to Make Agamographs with Students
If you’re looking for a STEAM-focused learning activity that can be used to support student learning objectives, agamographs are a great tool. In this tutorial, Dr. Jamie Hipp will show you how to create these in your classroom.
This workshop is part of our Meaningful Learning Targets Pack in the Accelerator Professional Membership.
Agamographs are a set of images that change at different angles. It’s a terrific way to integrate art, math and design with students. This kind of art in part of the kinetic art movement, and was pioneered by Yaacov Agam.
While agamographs are a fun activity for students, there’s a way to extend it beyond the surprise factor. You can use creating these artworks as part of your student learning objectives (also known as SLOs, SGGs, SGOs and more). It’s a way for students to visually showcase their growth and learning over time.
Students can integrate light, sound and textures to create a sensory experience which also embeds the principles of science, math, and design. Teachers can create more meaningful learning targets using diagnostic, formative and summative assessments for activities like this one.
This workshop preview is part of our members-only Accelerator workshops. Each month, we release a stack of videos and worksheets to help educators bring inspiring new techniques into their classrooms. Each workshop also provides teachers with a certificate for 1 PD hour.
