Hi, you all:
Happy holiday!
I wonder if you'd like to do me a favor for my dissertation proposal
writing. I would HIGHLY appreciate it if you do. Thanks!
I've been reading a lot of articles regarding to the use of computer
technology in art teaching. What kind of strike me from the reading is
the different positions that researchers and (art) teachers take.
Some articles would describe the importance and greatness of
integrating computer technology in art teaching, and refer to some of
the national survey data and say -"unfortunately, teachers - including
art teachers - are reluctant to change." Other comments include
"teachers are not willing to give up their control", or "they feel too
threatened to be challenged by the new relationship of teaching and
learning".
For teachers that I talk to... Most of them describe the difficult
situations that they're facing - with no or not enough money, computers,
training, time, and administrative supports. It's hard to expect them to
use computers, as they'd like to in their teaching.
For you guys, who seems to be able to break through some of the
barriers described above and start to use on-line communication
(ArtsEdNet) as a resource for teaching and problem solving. I would like
to know
1) what's your response to the different positions that researchers and
art teachers seem to take?
2) what motivates you to use ArtsEdNet, and how does this work or not
work for you?
3) Any personal stories of your learning/struggling process while using
computers in your art teaching
All of the above are highly welcome. Thanks!
