Digitalization in educational systems.Teaching art in the age of computer technology
by, Dr. Blegina Hasko BEZO
The rapid pace of societal change and the proliferation of new technologies are changing practically every area of our personal and professional lives, including how we work, think, play, communicate, send, and disseminate information. Use of technology in education has an impact on teacher-student interaction. Innovation is a global paradigm shift in each aspect of our society, including the community of education, transforming itself and its functioning. With the development of modern technology, the process of teaching art is changing. Over the last decade, computers have begun to play another role in the great benefits of art education. Images in an electronic format can no longer be separated from the basic composition of art education. Electronic media has changed the way art is taught, students learning about art, and ultimately the way art teachers understand art lessons. The relationship that has been established between art and computer technology is critical in defining the future of the educational system. Throughout history, the worlds of art and art education have employed technology in their processes. Art teachers are now responsible for teaching not only traditional subjects but also image processing technologies. Crucial to future teaching is how teachers will integrate and combine traditional teaching tools, processes, and ways of thinking about Art with the new tools, new processes and thinking skills needed to blend and utilize the complex variety of information concepts in today’s world. This paper elaborates how computer and related technologies can be applied in teaching art, the extent of impact that computerassisted art has on art students and the utilization of technology to ameliorate the teaching of strategies of thinking and learning and the development of artcentered cognitive skills.
