Technology as a Bridge

I’m traveling to Pittsburgh, PA later this week to address the Pennsylvania Art Education Association Conference. I’ll be taking a cue from the conference theme “Art • Bridges • Community” and talking about using technology as a bridge to connect the art classroom to other parts of the world. I’ll be encouraging art teachers in the audience to use the digital tools they have at their disposal to: (1) reach beyond their classroom walls; (2) form a new relationship with an art teacher and classroom somewhere around the globe; and (3) join (or start) a online art project that involves their students in a global collaboration or cultural exchange. Looking forward to it!
