Future Tense: Arts Education Technology Conference Summary. An Invitational Conference Sponsored by the Getty Center for Education in the Arts (Los Angeles, California, January 24-26, 1991).
Getty Center for Education in the Arts, Los Angeles, CA.
This document summarizes the proceedings from a 3-day conference about arts education technology. Presenters addressed both the promise and uncertainty of new and emerging technologies. There was an overriding concern for students and teachers, the human element of education that technology should serve. Day 1 consisted of the opening session "From Here to 2000: Education and Technology" followed by two special presentations, "Visions of the Future" and "Producing Arts with Technology." On the second day, the general sessions addressed interactive hypermedia and the educational possibilities presented by new multimedia technology. There were panel presentations concerning multimedia and arts education including a videodisc music series, and a Shakespeare project. The afternoon sessions addressed such issues as discipline based art education and multimedia, the future of arts education and the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), and learning through drama. The third day's general session addressed technology's impact on children. This was followed by 10 sessions where experts from various arts disciplines discussed technological applications in their fields, for example: studio art teaching, music education software, and teaching, preparing schools for technology, and technology with limited school budgets. The luncheon session addressed the power of the imagination and the closing session dwelled on partnerships for educational technology. (KM)
