Throughout the United States, technology is widely accessible and used in k-12 arts classrooms. As society advances through the 21st century, numerous researchers have found advantages and disadvantages of using technology in the classroom. As educators of the arts, it is critical to employ effective ways of transferring knowledge to students. One major goal is to enhance a society where people are participants and patrons in the arts. The purpose of this presentation is to present and discuss: (1) Current trends in the k-12 arts classroom that utilizes technology for formal and informal learning, (2) discuss advantages and disadvantages of the use of technology in arts classrooms, (3) transfer of knowledge to incorporate participation and appreciation of students, and (4) implications for further research.
