Assessing Online Resources for K-12 Teachers
The findings of this report represent the results of an online survey about the resources provided to K–12 teachers by the J. Paul Getty Museum on www.getty.edu. The survey was sent to teachers in the Getty Education Department's database of contacts, Facebook friends, and recipients of the monthly e-newsletter Getty Teacher Update. From these channels, 374 individuals completed the survey.
The survey questions were designed to ascertain whether the Department is meeting teachers needs through its online offerings. In addition to questions dealing specifically with the effectiveness of teacher resources offered on www.getty.edu, we asked questions to gain insight into how teachers are using the Internet and other technologies to teach art. What kinds of technologies and web-based tools do teachers use? How important are these technologies and tools? How are teachers displaying reproductions of works of art? Which characteristics of an arts-related lesson plan are most important? The responses to such questions enabled Getty staff to determine areas for improvement in order to better meet teachers' needs.
