Art Technology Program
The mission of this program is to infuse technology with the visual arts program in a practical and educationally sound manner. Our goal is to train art educators in grades K-5 to establish and develop strategies for the use of technology in their art programs. The Art Technology Specialist is well versed in the applications specific to art technologies, more sophisticated programs, and the established Visual Arts Florida State Standards. This program serves as an entry-level introduction to technology for the school-site visual arts educator and their students to technology. The technology infused program provides students with instruction incorporating iPads and it's technologies in the Art room. It includes an overview and demonstration of the function of fundamental hardware components and hands-on experience with selected applications. Students, with the assistance of their school site art educator and the Art Technology Specialist will demonstrate and apply learned technological skills in producing a series of artworks supported by the Florida Sunshine State Standards for the Visual Arts.
