Do you teach or are you interested in teaching digital media? Do you incorporate technology in your art? We want to build a Computing in the Arts community of educators. High schools in many states require no computing education beyond studying business suite software. However, high school students are savvy and enthusiastic digital media users. Computing in the Arts degree programs can harness this interest and experience, and facilitate both critical and creative thinking. Our main question for discussion is how do you combine art and technology in your work or curriculum? In exploring this synergy, there are many interesting bypaths to investigate such as how an artist’s sense of aesthetics compares to that of a computer scientist, or how to best foster collaboration between technologist and artist. Come share your thoughts and experiences!
Rebecca Bruce and I will both lead this session.
