For Kern County high school visual arts teachers.
Cloud computing, Web 2.0… or whatever you call it, contains great tools and resources for educators in the visual arts.
Spend some time with the faculty from the Bakersfield College Art Department to look at ways of using these new digital tools to increase student success.
We'll be examining how we use this new media, but we also want to know how you use it.
You will create a new kind of 'blog, one which is geared toward artists rather than writers. So, post some digital photos so you can practice uploading. Consider images of:
your students' art
Dinner (no cost to you) starts at 5:30 in the Renegade Room (the student-run campus restaurant), then we'll walk over to Fine Arts 9 about 7:00. For directions, see the map below.
