Who is the Arts EdNet tutorial for?

The Arts EdNet tutorial could be for you if you are a primary or secondary Visual Arts educator and:

  • you haven't used the Internet much;
  • you want to find out what the Internet has to offer teachers and students;
  • you want to use the Internet as part of your curriculum.

Why use the Internet?

The Internet can give you access to many wonderful and exciting opportunities to incorporate information and communication technologies (ICT) into the classroom. Some of the advantages it can offer are:

  • convenient access to diverse resources to support the curriculum;
  • resources that will encourage students to think critically, analytically and imaginatively;
  • avenues of communication for both students and teachers;
  • opportunities for collaborative curriculum projects across schools;
  • opportunities for students to publish work for a broad audience by publishing on the Internet;
  • peer support and professional development for teachers through contact with teachers in other schools.
