AbstractThis thesis examines the role that technology may have in art education. It is a case study that describes how the art educators in one Arizona school district are currently using technology and the plans they have to use technology in their classrooms in the future. On site interviews and limited classroom observations were used to collect information. Art educators cooperating in the study were asked a wide range of unstructured questions to gather their views and impressions. Transcripts are included. The case study suggests that there is a high level of support for the introduction of technology into the art classrooms in this school district. However, at this time it seems that the technologies under consideration are limited to the microcomputer and the CD-disk. In addition, in this school district there seemed to be no technical support system available to assist the art educators in their attempts to integrate technology into the art classroom. Their future success might be limited by the lack of support available from outside sources.
