Transcript of Technology in the Art Classroom

By: Macie Allen Technology in the Art Classroom Progression: Technology in the classroom, in general, has progressed tremendously over the past few years. In 1951, the TV and a carbon copier were the primary technological devices in schools. It was about this time that the first-generation Univac computer was delivered to the US Census Bureau. Fast forward five decades, our world is dependent on technology. Schools are undergoing major transformation as they make the switch to digital learning and race to catch up with the world's technical pace. Students are growing up with computers, laptops, iPads, cellphones, etc., and are very interested in all of these gadgets. It is very important to make connect these technological devices and interests with what is going on in the Art classroom. Online Galleries Students should also be encouraged to travel to art galleries around the world, online. Nearly every major art gallery worldwide has a website. One former art teacher used online galleries to teach her students about artist statements, which are often displayed alongside their famous work. She then had her students write and type their own artist's statement and displayed it with their best work of art. Online Art Gallery Fuglestad, along with a growing number of art teachers, use Artsonia, an online art gallery, called the largest student art museum in the world. It has many uses, but proves to be a wonderful way to spotlight, as well as preserve student masterpieces for years-to-come. Artsonia even displays student art on a slideshow at the Big Screen Plaza in New York City, spotlighting schools as they visit. Dryden Elementary's Art teacher, Tricia Fuglestad, is a star when it comes to using today's plethora of technology. She is able to use it to enrich her students' art experiences. Her forward thinking has enriched her student's understanding and appreciation of art in many aways. They use videos and computers to produce instructional movies and songs about art for all levels. There is even a movie about how to clean and take care of Penelope Paintbrush! She also implements extensive use of creative apps and computer art programs. Fuglestad's blog is bombarded with views at http://drydenart.weebly.com/fugleblog.html. Another easy technology add in the
classroom is the use of art-related games online.
Artsology.com provides many options
for all grade levels from a sand painting game
following a lesson on Indian Art, to the
Abstract Expressionist Battleground.
Kindergarteners might enjoy
Monet's Frog Game. Some "must haves" for the art classroom include an LCD Projector to bring art to life on the big screen as oppossed to a page in a book, digital video cameras, along with scanners and color printers. Teachers encourage taking any and all opportunities to apply for grants and contests to provide money for these resources. The iPad is at the forefront of being the most innovative
and dynamic tool in art education. They use the site, "ipadsinart.weebly.com,
to show art teachers the endless ways the iPad
can open the door to creativity as a students and future careers.
They boast the iPad's ability to help students
explore drawing, painting, digital photography, critique,
storytelling, graphic design, movie making and songwriting.
Professional artist, David Hockney, was recently
featured on the cover of the magazine, New Yorker, with his iPad art. Along with encouraging the necessity and successes of bringing technology into the classroom, these teachers admit it is costly. They strongly encourage teachers to apply for grants and ask their community businesses and art foundations to donate toward their cause. They also provide updates and grant application forms on their website. They are on a mission to bring art into the 21st century !

They are on a mission to bring art into the 21st century! I have now realized there are so many ways to incorporate technology into the art classroom. There are so many resources available and just be creative! Student’s are very smart and creative when it comes to technology, let them help you, let them give you ideas, and let them use their imaginative to help combine technology and art into the classroom!
