* ArtsConnected Workshop
4:00-5:30pm PDT/7:00-8:30pm EDT
This workshop utilizes both easy to understand computer technology and
the free resources of the Minneapolis Institute of Art and the Walker
Art Center, to provide teachers with additional educational tools for
student skill development and improvement. The material being presented
has application for both interdisciplinary learning and easily
implemented standard assessment strategies. See
http://www.artsconnected.org/ for more information.
Using the many features in ArtsConnected that encompass artwork and
global cultural information is the multicultural focus on September 5.
Using a proactive approach to multi-culturalism, Kevan Nitzberg gives
teachers some tools that they can use in their classes to help counter
what might easily become a reaction of hate to people from other
cultures as the 9/11 anniversary approaches.
* ArtsSites - Blanket the World with Peace Project
6:00-7:00pm PDT/9:00-10:00pm EDT
Join arts educators from around the world as we take a look at some
