I am teaching an art education and technology course next semester at Southwest
Texas State University for the first time.
It is a new and required class for art education majors. We have eighteen students
enrolled. We will have one Macintosh computer for each student and other
peripheral devices. We will have a fiber optic connection for e-mail and world wide
web access using Netscape. We have KidPix, ClarisWorks, Micro-soft Word,
Dabbler, PhotoShop, Macro-Media Director and QuarkX-Press. We will have a black
and white laser printer and a color ink jet printer and color scanner. We will have an
ethernet network. All students will have an e-mail account and will be subscribed to
The course meets twice a week for 2 1/2 hours each time it meets for a total of five
hours a week. We will also have the computer lab open during the evening for after
Does anyone have any suggestions for me? What topics do you think should be
covered? What issues should be covered? What assignments do you think would
be beneficial? Does anyone else out there teach such a course? Any help would
be appreciated. Thanks a lot!
