Make Believe Art: Smart Phone

Young students in our summer program at Dendy have been excited to use my Iphone to research topics, so I decided to have each student make their own Iphone out of paper. Students watch their parents and other adults absorbed on their machines and indirectly this has given students an opportunity to explore what they would want to do if they had a smart phone. Like how children would use phones made from 2 foam cups attached with string, students make believe calling and texting each other with their phones: arranging play dates, responding to emergencies, and visiting music sites.
