The goal of ARTSEDGE is to create inspiring, interactive resources for K-12 learners, their teachers, and their families.
ARTSEDGE was instituted by the Kennedy Center in 1996 to reach out to schools and the community offering printed materials, classroom support, and Internet technologies. Four million participate in Kennedy Center Education Department programming each year through ARTSEDGE resources.
ARTSEDGE is expanding their content "to serve a new definition of educators, encompassing classroom and out-of-school teachers, with the single-minded goal to support arts-based student learning, whether in the classroom or an informal learning environment, like the home."
Lesson plans, audio stories, video clips, and interactive online modules make up the easily-browsed collection of free digital resources. Also featured are best practices in educational media and multimedia-enhanced instruction.
The focus of ARTSEDGE is on supporting innovative teaching with the arts, and meeting changing trends in education as well as accommodating the evolving impact of technology.
