Abstract

The presentation discusses how mentoring new art teachers using technology and cyberspace collaborations can significantly improve the quality of their teaching. Our project has Buffalo City School District art teachers (mentors) using technological tools and face-to-face meetings to mentor Buffalo State Art Education Department preservice students (interns) as they implement cutting edge curriculum strategies under the direction of college faculty while teaching elementary public school students. Interns teach lessons in field placements while being digitally videotaped. They upload the videos and a critical reflection of their teaching to a secure server. Volunteer mentors receive a state-of-the-art Macintosh computer that allows them to view the interns' videos. Mentors receive instruction in the use of the computer and specific software and Internet applications relevant to the project. Mentors also use the computer as a teaching station in their classroom.
