No. 313 | Inter/Actions/Inter/Sections: Art Education in a Digital Visual Culture
Robert W. Sweeny, Editor
Offers practical suggestions for art educators who wish to add new methodologies to their teaching, or to rethink existing practices, while presenting the general reader with the challenges that accompany teaching, learning, and producing art in a digital visual culture. Through these wide-ranging essays, art education and digital technology are rethought, and re-viewed, touching upon themes of identity and virtuality, modifications upon traditional learning theories, reconceptualizations of culture, translations of prior art educational practices, ludic interfaces, and the relationship between physicality and the ephemeral. Each essay adds to the expanding network that is current art educational practice, pointing toward numerous possibilities for future art educational forms.
"Opens up a new conversation about the technological possibilities of contemporary art education. Authors cover topics representing research projects as well as theoretical and practical issues of digital visual culture, including those connected to identity, social interaction, cultural conditions, literacy, and learning. Teachers at all levels will help to prepare their students for the future by addressing the issues raised in this text.”
