> -Do you teach art using a desk top, lap top, Smart Board (interactive
> whiteboard)or any other touch sensitive surface?
*** I use my Bluetooth Wacom tablet. My laptop is hooked to a large TV
using an AverKey. Sometimes I hook it up to the projector if I can track it
down (ours is on a cart and is usually in somebody's classroom)
> -If you do not use technology to teach art, will you consider doing so?
> *** NA
> -For teaching purposes, do you have access to a desk top, lap top or Smart
*** We currently do not have a Smart Board in the district, but my
Bluetooth Wacom tablet has the ability to be interactive using Smart Board
software (free download) and is highly interactive. And, it was only $200!
> -Do you have a budget to buy supplies/teaching aids (including software)?
*** Sometimes you have to be creative in your search for funds. I
have an Elmo only because I teach IDL classes (distance learning). My
digital camera and video recorder were purchased through PTO. My
scanner/color printer was purchased through an art fundraiser. Software was
requisitioned through grant money.
> -Would you spend your own money to buy cool software to help you teach
*** Sadly, I do! I usually buy it first to play with for my personal
use and then get it for school!
> -Are you comfortable with the product pricing we discussed above?
*** The price is definatley enticing. I would like to see some screen
captures to have a better understanding of what it does.
> -In purchasing the software we plan on offering a rebate. Customers can

> the non profit idea something you would choose?
*** No, since I do spend my own money on classroom stuff I would ask for
the cash rebate.
