<nettime> Collaborative Art Technology Programs

Hi there nettime,

I imagine many folks here have plenty of knowledge about the following.

I'm on the Digital Arts faculty of a large extra-curricular kid /  
teen art school in Vancouver called Arts Umbrella.  I'm working to  
conceive / propose a teaching project that uses collaborative  
technology in the art classroom, whether for digital arts, dance,  
music, architecture, theatre, cartooning, or some combination thereof.

Does anyone know of such a project they've had good experience with,  
or that looks interesting?  Something that might provide a good model  
of challenging the kids, bringing out the artist in them?  A program  
that artists, teachers, or kids would look at and say, "I wish WE had  
a program like that?"

What I'm conceiving is either a short (1-3 week) intensive class, or  
perhaps one or more 12-week after-school / weekend courses.  I'm more  
interested in technology that lets the kids collaborate together,  
rather than simply innovation in the teacher-student relationship.

This is us:


Looking forward to feedback from the nettime braintrust.
