Digital Methods in Art Education is a class offered by the University of Minnesota Duluth that introduces art education students to various media techniques that may be later used in their careers.
Digital Methods in Art Education introduces students to theoretical and practical experiences with emerging visual technologies. Art projects will use the computer as a creative tool and incorporate digital media in their process and delivery format. Projects may include digital photography, mixed media, illustration, animation, digital video and sound editing. This course provides a forum for the creation and testing of digital art instructional resources for children and youth. Participants will be required to develop lesson plans and make visits to educational sites as volunteer instructors. Digital Methods assignments will integrate contemporary pedagogical theories of visual culture and current standards for media arts literacy in art education.
