In this part, I will utilize technology in substitution, augmentation and modification level.

As I have seen from my four years old niece, the young children are surprisingly good at utilizing smart phones or tables independently. Therefore, most of the activities are independent studies. I really enjoyed while creating these activities, especially the activity is called “Destination Modern Art” my favorite. I even suggested it to some of my friends, who are English Language teachers in my country. I think the green little alien in this interactive game will trigger the interest of children. In addition, the information about artwork and artist are clear, precise and appropriate for the young children. The drawing activity is a good chance for them express themselves in creative way with a different tool. Most importantly, shooting a video is not also entertaining, but also help children to express themselves creatively. I think all activities are might even use to teach discipline skills. This unit started with concept of emotions, change, and behavior. Then it continued with art activities, which I think it was inevitable. Since I think are is the product of our emotions or influence our emotions. The students are work as whole group or mii groups in the part A and B. In part C, independent activities creates a balance on the whole unit
