A panel discussion on the future of digital arts pedagogy, with artists and educators De Angela Duff, Michael Rees, Stephanie Rothenberg. Moderated by Carla Gannis 

How do we effectively teach new intersections between art and technology in the 21st century? First we must recognize that students in their teens and 20s use technology at higher rates than people from other generations and exhibit intense mental plasticity. They are browsers, innovators, producers, and nomads. As students engage communication in a fluid, post-digital era we must facilitate their synthetic and organic creativity. Mel Alexenberg defines "postdigital art" as artworks that address the humanization of digital technologies through interplay between digital, biological, cultural, and spiritual systems...between virtual and augmented reality.
