Grossmont College Technology Plan 2007-2010.

Technology

Art-Drawing, Design & Painting

Description

The one improvement added to the 2D area is the multimedia projection system.  We anticipate several technology needs, ranging from CPU’s to special needs equipment that complement the 2D area.  We anticipate improvements in the classrooms i.e. ventilation improvements, lighting, structural adjustments.  We also need upgrades in technology i.e. scanners, portable lighting, and various other items that will maintain the level of need for out students. 

Curriculum Impact

Anticipate the improvements and adjustments of the multimedia systems, to work with the addition of technical equipment.  Additional improvements of classroom equipment, i.e. tables, drawing equipment, easels, table saw, lighting will maintain and enhance the educational needs of students and aid instruction.
