The Imagination Machines. [Videotape.]
Getty Center for Education in the Arts, Los Angeles, CA.
This one-hour documentary on videotape reveals how computer technology and interactive media rely on the languages of the arts--images, sounds, colors, and movements--to engage children in new ways of learning about the arts and other subjects. Students are shown using educational software that encourages development of knowledge and skills in art, music, dance, history, geography, mathematics, and chemistry. Educators engage in a discussion on curiosity about the world that is being stimulated by an electronic medium that breaks down barriers of departmentalized disciplines through utilization of the integrating, common language of art.
