    > > I have a lot of questions on technology. I teach high school students.
    > We have Mac format in the classrooms, I love Mac better than PC, have
    > worked both. Here are the questions.
    > 1. How important is it to use technology in the art classrooms? VERY!
    > 2. If used, at what level do you really begin having the students use
    > technology? I begin with my Kindergarten class
    > 3. What hardware do you feel you should have access to and how often?
    8-10 computers minimum, digital camera, scanner, copy machine, color printer
    > 4. What software do you feel is the best and why? For the younger
    students a simple paint program is fine. I like Paint Shop Pro, and Photo
    Manager for older students. Also important is a WebPage Composer.
    > 5. For those of you who have used this a lot, how has it benefited your
    > students? Students are much more comfortable with computers. They are more
    creative in all areas of art.
    > 6. Do students miss out on traditional art classrooms? I use both.
    > I am not being totally upfront at this point as to how I am involved
    > with technology in my room. I will do so after I have some feedback
    > from you. I am trying to compare my thoughts to that of my professional
    > buddies.

    > I the State where the Gov. declared 2000-2001 the year of the Fine
    > Arts. And someone asked me if I was going to remember that come
    > election time.
