Abstract


In this article we present the results of a survey, which studied the views of 21,040 high school students from all around Greece, regarding the assessment of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) in the teaching of Art. The results were processed using Multidimensional Statistic Data Analysis, on the axis of dividing the students’ sample in 5 groups, in regard to their positive or negative views on using Technology in Art. Besides the fact that the vast majority of the student sample (87.04%) appears to be familiar with ICT, there was a differentiation in answers among the student groups. It is especially interesting that in questions regarding the influence of Technology on modern Art and the consequent appearance of new Art forms, 50.00% and 65.59% of the students, respectively, gave positive answers. In general, the survey’s results confirmed the hypothesis of a positive attitude of students towards using Technology in Art education.
