What Can Be Learned from IMAGE? Teachers' Perceptions of the Educational Value of an Art Package. CAL Research Group Technical Report No. 70.
In evaluating IMAGE, an open-ended computer assisted learning program designed to enable English children to produce, modify, and print artwork created on the computer, teachers' perceptions of the program were focused on what the software package can do and what can be learned from using the program. Eighty teachers utilized the package in their schools and colleges. Overall the verdict on IMAGE was favorable. The report showed that IMAGE was usable in many situations, over a wide range of environments, and by teachers with very different educational philosophies. Non-specialist teachers as well as specialist art teachers with a variety of interests and approaches to art viewed the package as valuable. The teachers' evaluations raised further questions about art education and computers that extended beyond the role of the IMAGE software package. (CK)
