I am an obvious fan of the NY Times, especially their education section! An article this morning caught my eye and got me thinking about all of our technology and engaging projects we do with laptops/iPads and other cool gadgets.

The article argues/advocates/references projects that are done with paper, paint, pens, markers....rather than digital projects done with tablets or computers. Students learn about art history and visit museums, however the creation of art in schools is dwindling as funding is drying up.

My opinion, we of course need a balance and there is a place for both 'classic' art projects and current trends. Striking that balance is probably the most difficult challenge we face and needs to be well thought out and planned for our students!
