Plugged-In Art: 4 Art Projects That Blend Creativity & Technology

How About a Little Geometry With That Picasso?

Just as parents often attempt to sneak healthy foods to their unsuspecting children, instructors are finding ways to sneak lessons on science, engineering, math and even physics into student engagement with fun technology tools and games. From using Picasso’s cubist paintings to teach geometry to leveraging the colors of the Renaissance to teach science, this article offers four tools that could enrich your classroom with a creative, but applied learning, twist. Could any of these be built into your curriculum?

The answer, of course, will depend on what outcomes you are attempting to achieve, but these examples point to opportunities to engage students based on their innate interests while building in opportunities to learn important skills to prepare them for the future.
