DAAP: Digital Futures in Creative Education
Tuesday, Oct. 27
5 p.m. ET
Join us for a panel amongst art educators on this timely topic! After the talk, spend time reminiscing with fellow art education graduates and learn about the School of Art’s new summer intensive MA Art Education program.
The Covid-19 pandemic disrupted conventional approaches to education and forced educators to embrace digital technologies to deliver instruction overnight. This abrupt shift to online instruction highlighted significant inequalities in access and opportunity to engage with digital technologies. According to UNESCO (UNESCO, 2006) the arts are essential in raising awareness and promoting human rights so art education programs in the 21st century should embrace contemporary digital technologies for artistic creation and new media production.
The goal of this conversation among art educators is twofold. One the one hand, it is an invitation to reflect about the ways in which art educators in the trenches are facing the challenges brought about by the pandemic. On the other hand, it is an opportunity to imagine how art and technology can promote a more equitable creative education for our schools.
