This is my response to question #4. The question is, "How can technology
be used to conduct inquiry about art and ecology?"
This is very important for many teachers these days because
everything is revolving around technology and computers. The Getty web
page and the entire World Wide Web are excellent resources for any
teacher. They allow students to research what they like and get plenty of
information on numerous artists and actually get to see pictures. The
ecological art shown on the web page is somewhat new and many elementary
and even secondary schools would not have books and information on them.
I seriously doubt an elementary would spend sixty dollars on "Wood," by
Andy Goldsworthy; priorities are not on art and ecology. This is where
the WWW would step in.
This list serve is also a great resource for teachers. I have read
many teachers request for suggestions and help. This is awesome because
there is no other place for information on art and how to do certain
There are many other ways to find information on the web on
individual artists too. For example, there are about four seperate web
pages on Andy Goldsworthy with pictures and text. Students could look
these pages up and have access to information they would not noramally
have access to.
