This link is a collection of great resources to help art educators bring digital art in the classroom. It contains project ideas, reasons and benefits of teaching these projects, as well as sample lessons and curriculums needed. In addition to ideas on how to bring digital art into the classroom, it also provides a list of tools and programs needed to make the lesson plan more effective. The list includes Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, HyperStudio by Knowledge Adventure, KidPix by Broderbund, Procreate Painter, Corel Bryce, Wacom Graphics Tablet, Corel PhotoPaint, and Paint Shop Pro. There are also links to networking sites like the NAEA that allow you to connect with other art educators to evaluate and compose lesson plans. I don't have much for a personal evaluation/interpretation of the website, I just thought it was a great resource that I wanted to share with everyone with everything needed to build, execute, and evaluate a lesson plan that brings digital art into the classroom.
Here is an example of an 8th grader's digital art project:
Also, here is a link to a website for Norwood Middle school and contains some great examples of student work across all mediums but specifically, some examples of digital work including drawings in illustrator and simple animations.
