Presentation Description: Integrating technology, web 2.0, and interactive tools in the art room gives students the opportunity to enhance their 21st-century learning skills, practice creative problem-solving, and develop higher-level thinking as they create art. Showcasing student work through online venues opens your art room doors to an authentic global audience, connect students with others in collaborations, and enriches learning for all. I will share stories and examples from my technology rich elementary art room and how our online connections have enthralled, enriched and engaged my students.

    Your story is AMAZING! I really enjoyed your presentation and I am totally inspired to try some of your ideas.

    I am also an elective teacher (middle school orchestra). I feel like us elective teachers are considered by others as babysitters instead of educated instructors. Using technology to promote your children’s work clearly showed that the fine arts are just as important as math or English!
