I do so hope this works... I'm just trying a post, a (slightly edited) =
cc of an e-mail I sent to Larry & Rosa...=20

I'm currently working toward an MA in art education at The University of =
the Arts in Philadelphia. The art education just got a large grant =
through PA's 'Link to Learn' program to train teachers how to use =
technology and distance learning. We have been working with the =
Philadelphia Museum of Art's distance learning programs, and have used =
some of the grant money to purchase teleconferencing equipment for =
several Philly schools. Two new faculty were hired this year to =
spearhead continued 'progress' with this grant.
=20
The problem I have with all this is that the technology has become such =
an all-consuming goal (grants, grants, grants!) for our department =
lately that the more traditional means of teaching and developing =
curriculum in art are under much less focus. There are no guarantees =
for any of us that our schools will have or be able to afford this =
technology... and I just wonder what used to be addressed in our classes =
during the time now spent on streaming video and PowerPoint. =20

Interestingly enough, I do believe that some of our faculty subscribe to =
this listserv... my feelings on this subject won't be new news to them, =
though... fond hellos to all!
