Technology Through the Arts
What is BCA Technology through the Arts Residencies Program?
BCA’s Technology through the Arts is a type of artist residency that focuses on acquisition of 21st Century Skills by enhancing technology and media literacy.
BCA’s Technology through the Arts residencies will enhance your students’ appreciation and understanding of visual and audiovisual arts in the digital domain by creation of artwork using a variety of equipment and software tools. Participants will gain computer knowledge as well as capacity for creativity and innovation.
The program will provide educational experiences that transform STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) into STEAM, with an A for the arts, to make the combination more powerful. Integrating arts and design humanize technology and expand the possibilities to understand and use it.
BCA’s Technology through the Arts will also provide the opportunity to implement cross-curricular integration in the form of digital artwork that could be based on Language Arts, Math, Science or Social Studies content.
Who should apply for a BCA Technology through the Arts Residency?
Any Brevard County teacher or school may apply for the program. BCA’s artist residencies are not exclusively oriented to activity teachers (visual arts, music, dance, etc.) but also include general education instructors in areas traditionally lacking in creativity and expression.
Participating educators have the opportunity to explore the possibilities of arts integration and its potential to add innovation and novelty to instruction.
BCA is aware, as well, of the imperative need to bridge the gap between how students are presently equipped versus what they will actually need in the near future. Our goal is to assist schools with implementation of 21st century teaching and learning concepts, by incorporating this content into each residency experience.
