Abstract:This article aims to investigate the potential of holistic teaching of art with technology, exploring how art teachers can integrate art with an array of digital media in the larger context of holistic pedagogy. Holistic education proposes nurturing the wholeness of individuals, helping learners to make sense of their lived experience and to act responsibly both to themselves and to the community. Many art educators embrace this value in their art teaching practice, believing that the unity of individuals can be cultivated through “a transformative engagement in visual arts” (Campbell, 2006, p. 29). This belief implies a model for teaching and learning which fosters inquiry into life, seeking the alignment of body, mind, and spirit through learners’ visual expression and communication (Campbell, 2005; Carroll, 2006; Gradle, 2009; Kind, Irwin, Grauer & de Cosson, 2005; London, 2006).
