      :Art and Technology Project
      The students used the computer program, Art Dabbler to create
      Impressionist-like digital art.
      This project is used annually as a part of the students' art history grade
      and as a way to introduce them
      to an alternate media in the art program. After working with the students to
      show them how to
      use the tool, I administered a survey to the students to determine their
      understanding of
      the use of technology in their art program as well as their satisfaction
      with the new media.
      The project will be expanded to include an additional digital art piece
      which may then be used in note cards or other project without copyright
      Steps in the Project
      1. Introduction to Impressionism by the art teacher
      2. Find Impressionist art online (art teacher and instructional technology
      3. Select an artist and painting to study (art teacher)
      4. Teach the use of the tools in Art Dabbler 2 (instructional technology
      5. Students replicate the painting selected over several class periods (art
      teacher and instructional technology specialist)
      6. Save and print the Impressionistic study (instructional technology
      7. Note cards were printed for Mother's Day presents in year 2.

      Integrating the visual arts with technology, Massachusetts NBCT Barbara
      Marder helps fourth grade art students explore color theory. They look at
      Impressionist landscapes, use a color theory Web site, and apply their
      knowledge to their own creative artwork.

      Stop on Red, Yellow and Blue: Color in Art
      The following unit demonstrates integrating art and technology into an
      extended unit on color theory with fourth grade students. I began designing
      this unit by creating a thinking map using Inspiration T software and placed
      this on my iBookT desktop for frequent use. Using this technology gave me a
      clear way to identify my objectives and resources for the lesson.

      Anthony Cody
      California NBCT Anthony Cody challenged his all-girl technology class to
      create photoessays using digital cameras and a variety of publishing
      applications. This exhibit shows the power of technology in an urban school.

      Akinyi Edmonds
      NBCT Akinyi Edmonds, North Carolina middle school business education
      teacher, helps introduce her students to the uses and creativity of
      technology by demonstrating student use of desktop publishing software and
      use of the Internet to publish posters about important artists.

      Jean Kriwox
      In this exhibit, Idaho NBCT Jean Kriwox uses multiple forms of technology to
      introduce her sixth grade students to symmetry and tessellations through the
      use of quilt patterns. Her students explore the relationship between
      geometry and quilting to develop higher-order thinking skills. Using Web
      Quests, software, and multiple community resources, the students design and
      create unique quilt blocks.

      animating - the planning, drawing, filming, and editing. Watch as inanimate
      objects come to life in object animation, clay animation, and cutout
