Improving Cybermedia Literacy In Art Education Through Internet Art: A Study on Adolescent Perspectives

Scherling, Laura S.

By fostering cyberliteracy in the arts, educators and their students can examine the digital artifacts of our time and embrace a dialogue that addresses the profound effects that digital art, such as Internet artwork, is having on youth culture in formal and informal learning environments. This research, through a series of interviews with adolescent participants who have grown up as digital natives, explores an enhanced focus on cyberliteracy in art education, on both the part of students and educators. Four major themes are explored: cybermedia literacy in art education, adolescent Internet use, the emotional and psychosocial development of the adolescent, and online identity construction.
