The 2014 NAEA National Convention will be held March 29-31 in San Diego, California
at the San Diego Convention Center and Hilton San Diego Bayfront
The 2014 NAEA National Convention Theme is:
Spark! Fusing Innovative Teaching & Emerging Technologies
We are visual arts educators. We are artists. We are creative leaders. How can we fuse creative thinking with art knowledge and skills, and emerging technology, to create powerful teaching and learning opportunities?
NAEA members are invited to submit proposals for presentations that embrace thoughtful integration of emerging technologies into the art learning experience; share efficiencies with technological advances in administering art education programs; and demonstrate strategies for innovative teaching that support student learning. NAEA collaborates with numerous partners to provide a premiere professional development event for art educators, researchers, administrators, museum educators, pre-service students, and teaching artists. We are seeking interactive and engaging proposals that address the following topics:
• Innovative art teaching strategies or techniques
• Emerging technologies that support art and design education
• Current trends in e-Portfolios
• K-16 collaborations or Personal Learning Networks (PLNs)
• Art education and common core standards
• Media arts in the art classroom
• Art education and augmented reality
• Global connections in learning
• Technology demonstrations that support innovative teaching
• Planning and designing art education learning environments
• Assessing teaching and learning in art education
• Using social media to strengthen art instruction
• Your ideas!
