FluidArts' debut edition highlights collaborative projects, dispatches
from
educators in developing countries, and a distinguished cache of
resources
reflecting best practices in the area of arts and science education and
literacy.

This month: interviews with educators and artists from Colombia, India
and
Jamaica publicizing their efforts to demystify and adapt technology to
synchronize with their culture's milieu; examples of the organization's
initiating work with students as designers, translators, writers,
artists,
and mentors; and information about FAs development of WaterRoots, an
educational project designed in connection with Virtual Africa's "The
Spirit
and Power of Water" (http://www.olats.org/africa/projets/projets.shtml).

FluidArts' resources are sorted for beginning, intermediate and advanced
literacy. The organization's goal is to promote an 'enlightened' media
literacy that focuses on and champions individual and cultural
differences
as they are reflected through the arts, the sciences and technology.
