Technology in the Arts

Blog Post created by Michelle Fernandez on Jul 11, 2017

How does technology affect dance education? Will it change? Dance depends on a bodily presence which can not be replaced. Technology has created opportunities for YouTube tutorials, dance on film, exploring dance in different areas. Still, these experiences do not compare to a live performance or lesson. I have chosen to embrace technology in dance education. It has only enhanced my classes. The combination of technology and a human presence in a dance class has made my classes even more engaging. My experience with technology in dance has included a variety of different tools. Recently I have chosen to tackle Canvas. The biggest obstacle I face is the lack of templates for quizzes, assignments and class outlines on Canvas for the arts. My goal is to create and share all of my canvas course to provide others in the arts an example of how you can incorporate Canvas in the arts classroom.
