The teacher presents a controversial news item about contemporary art, such as a contemporary art auction, and a debate is created in the class. This gives rise to a brief introduction to contemporary art (50’).
Presentation of the instagram and blog dynamics. The teacher creates an instagram account where they post content and the students give feedback during the seven sessions, with the aim that the students understand and see examples of contemporary art. Groups of 3 or 4 students with specific roles share themes or artists in groups to create a blog about an artist or an artistic tendency for each group (50’).
Search for contents and resources in different media to take it to the blog (50’).
Create a 2 or 3 minute documentary video about the artist or discipline that corresponds to each group and upload to the blog (50’).
Watching videos with popcorn in the classroom (50’).
Reflection through debate of the learning process and the artist or discipline of each group (50’).
At the beginning of each session ask a random group about their blog and look at it briefly in the classroom. The feedback that the students make in the instagram created by the teacher should be valued. Participation in debates will be evaluated. The visualizations and writing and aesthetics of the blog and what it contributes to appreciating contemporary art should be evaluated. The production of the video should be evaluated.
