Charlie,

I teach K-1st grade art classes and have one Mac computer in my room.
There are several ways I use it. One is, I have the CD-Rom "Eyes on Art"
from the Chicago Art Institute. I sometimes offer that as one choice for
students who have finished a project early. It does involve setting a
time limit, so students don't hog it. I have the oportunity to use the
computer lab for 3-4 weeks in the winter, and i do a drawing project with
my students using Kid-Pix. After that, using the KidPix program on the
computer is an option for early-finishing students (I keep track of
students using it, so all who care to get a chance). Its not much, but
it's something. I haven't yet done this, but I get the opportunity at
times to hook up the computer to a t.v., so I'd like to use the Eyes on
Art CD-rom with the whole class. When we get internet in our rooms
(which supposedly is coming), I'd like to go into some sites as a class.

Hope this gives you a few ideas.

Mary H.
