What types of technologies have you used that share a link with art? Include at least one link to a technology that could be used in the classroom.
I have always loved using Mac Movie Maker. This easy to use, free software is one of my favorite tools for the classroom. I have used Movie Maker for social studies, science and even math. There are a variety of project ideas online that you can use to apply Movie Maker to almost any subject area. And...as a bonus the students love making movies.
