I am interested in finding out how other art educators utilize technology as
a tool for teaching at the university or secondary level. I have a friend in
the sciences that uses a pad camera to illustrate her lectures with images
from texts, CD-roms, Internet sites, etc. She always has music keyed to the
theme of the day going when students come in and interesting visuals for the
students to explore while she gets the room settled and attendence taken. I
am especially interested in the use of pad cameras, etc... and the
development of interactive CD-roms by art educators for use in their art
rooms or by their art education students? This is a new area for me, but I
am teaching a secondary art education class using an ineffectual textbook, a
piece of chalk, a broken overhead projector, and slides that are unusable
because they have an unhealthy reddish glow. I am teaching visual arts
non-visually and it is very frustrating. I have been given the go ahead to
explore new and better ways to instruct and make a proposal for funds to
improve the departments circumstances in regards to instruction. Well, the
way it is no, I have no where to go but up. Suggestions and information
please. Su Douglas
