Technology Transformation

New technology is emerging everyday.  It seems almost impossible to keep up, let alone find ways to integrate it into your art curriculum.

Not sure how to start with your technology transformation? The infographic below can help you begin your technology journey.

The resources listed in the image above are hyperlinked below:
Get the technology you need with grants. See Supplementing Your Art Budget and Expand Your Art Room Budget.

Don’t do it alone . . . develop your PLN: (Personal Learning Network)
Twitter (here is my list of art educators on Twitter to get you started)
Art Ed 2.0
Art Education Blogs
Art Ed Yahoo Group

Web Tools:
108 Web Tools
Wix (website creator)
Glogster (interactive poster)
Aviary (image editor)
Art Babble (art videos online)

Another great place to start for beginners:

    Thanks, Theresa, for putting all of these resources into one post! I am going to be teaching on online class during the school year for art teachers called “Tech Ready Teacher” and we’ll explore Web 2.0 for art educators- These are all great starting points. You are right, there is so much technology (and new tech) out there every day it’s hard to keep track of it all! Let me know if you have any “must do’s” suggestions I should add to the class with tech and art teachers.
