Art Education and Technology: How to Connect, Collaborate, and Inspire (2013 SF)

San Jose Museum of Art, California

Are you interested in using technology to improve your presentations and/or better engage your audience, docent peer group, or museum? Docents from Art in the Dark, a digital art appreciation program serving sixth- to twelfth-graders, will share ideas for how to use technology to more effectively connect, collaborate, and inspire. Whether ready to apply these ideas to their own programs, or merely curious about what technology can offer, attendees will leave with practical ideas, tools, and resource documents to meet their own objectives.

Presenters:  Toby Fernald, docent (twenty-seven years) and Art in the Dark Chair (spearheaded the program); Tricia Hill, docent (eight years), Art in the Dark Co-chair, and Art in the Dark program developer; Karen Lantz, docent (thirteen years) and Art in the Dark public relations developer
