HOW CAN WE ADAPT TO INNOVATIONS IN TECHNOLOGY, ART MAKING, AND TEACHING PRACTICE?

Educators today are challenged to rethink their practice and refine their teaching skills to deepen student understanding in a world that is constantly changing. Teachers, students, and artists are confronted daily with the need to adapt, rework, or retool in order to stay current and relevant. SCEA’s sixth annual Arts & Education Forum at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga challenged educators, artists, and technologists to critically and creatively explore current and future practice in education, art making, and professional development. There were 51 participants representing 39 organizations from 11 states – Florida, Georgia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Tennessee, Texas, Washington DC – and Australia.
