Towards the development of electronic learning and online tools: An experimental approach to specialist teacher education (Art and Design)
Abstract:This paper is part of continuing research into electronic learning in specialist Initial Teacher Training. It argues for a broader approach to the art and design curriculum that facilitates questions related to established content, systems and methods of teaching and learning. Advocating a more experimental and analytical approach to the study of the subject, the research has supported both technical skills acquisition and the application of classroom discussion. More importantly, it has provided teaching models and methods that utilize digital technology as a visual research tool. It could be argued that Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is a potentially powerful means of questioning, critiquing convention, orthodoxy and the general predictability of much of what counts as school art practice.
