EE Symposium 2017 Materials

Most often, we pay little attention to the materials used in everyday classroom practices. Things like pencils, pens, Scantron forms, Blue Books, Powerpoint presentations, whiteboards, glue, scissors, felt, glitter, and playdough are submerged in the background of our experiences. We rarely notice them, and yet, behind our backs, they are at work, providing the material support for a host of educational activities and art-making practices.

At EE, participants experimented with the basic meanings and functions of these taken-for-granted objects.
