Hi, Paula! In terms of computer use in the classrooom for art history, I
am trying to get grant money to buy (1)a powermac with a CD-Rom capability
and a modem, and (2) something called an "LCD" panel. I already have a
(shared) phone line in my classroom, and an overhead projector with a high
number of lumens that is the "cool" as opposed to hot variety (you can
tell I'm not up on all the official terms). When I get the computer and
LCD panel, I will be able to project directly from the computer through
the LCD on the overhead projector and up onto a screen for the whole
classroom to see. Then I plan to use various museum webpages and CD-Rom
programs as audiovisuals to enhance my AP Art History class. By the way,
Zane Publishing makes an excellent 4-CD set called "History through Art,
800 BC to 1550 AD" - they also have another set for 1550 through modern
