BISD Teacher Presents Virtual Reality Applications in the Classroom at State Art Conference
Brazosport Art teacher Rhonda Church recently presented at the Texas Art Education Association (TAEA) 2016 Annual Conference in Dallas, Texas. This year’s theme for the event was “Passion is Purpose.” Rhonda Church was one of five TAEA grant recipients chosen for her 2016 proposal on research for the practical application of virtual reality technology in our K-12 art classrooms. Our own BISD teacher presented 2 classes on the topics of “Painting Paths of VR Panorama...and Beyond” and “Symposium: Art & Technology - Purposeful Passion.” When a STEM workshop presenter did not show up, Rhonda Church, with the help of April Reck, stepped in and provided an impromptu presentation for a class of about 50 participants. Now that’s setting the standard for educational excellence!
The TAEA represents almost 4,000 members throughout Texas who are engaged in teaching art and are genuinely passionate about advancing their profession. Approximately 2,000 were expected to attend the fall conference this year.
Great job representing Brazosport ISD!
