What are some specific questions art educators can use? Students AS Audience As educators, our roles with technology need to evolve. It is very common for classroom technology to be solely used as an aid. Word processing and basic researching is necessary, but art educators need to see technology as a social process. The roles of students and teachers as we know them today will change becasue of the human conditional element of technology. In our homes, technology is comfortable and a prominent elemnent in our everyday life. In K-12 education, technology and contemporary culture feel alien and divorced at times.
