Teacher's Lounge: "Art, Technology, and Education"

April 24, 2014
Ryan Education Center, Studio C
Free; 2 CPDUs

Have you been using technology in your classroom? When is technology vital to teaching and learning, and when does it get in the way? Have you thought about how technology contributes to learning in and through the arts? Join us for a provocative discussion and hands-on exploration of the role of technology in art and education. 

This program kicks off with artist and Florida State University professor Rob Duarte who will join us via Google Hangout. Rob teaches digital media and fabrication at FSU. His work attempts to bring to the surface the hidden relationships between technology and culture. For more information see this link.

Carolina Kaufman, Joe Anderson, and Silvia Gonzalez will also lead discussions around different platforms for using art and technology in the classroom. Those who attend the workshop at the museum will have the opportunity to try these tools in our studio. 

For those who are not able to attend in person, the Teachers’ Lounge will be recorded and broadcast live via Google Hangout. 

For those who have a Google+ account, you can RSVP and join the conversation as it happens live. Those without a Google+ account can still view the presentation on Google+ or watch the live broadcast on YouTube. Not available on the program date? This Teachers' Lounge will also be recorded and saved to YouTube upon the program's conclusion.

This program has reached capacity and registration is now closed. Registration is required for this program.
