As our society moves into global, technology-driven, information society, the inclusion of electronic technology in art curriculum has become a central issue in the art world and the field of art education. In particular, the expansion of the Internet has brought new content and new images to art curriculum, which, in turn, enhances a comprehensive approach to art education or Discipline-Based Art Education (DBAE). Although recent studies focusing on the computer use in art education have confirmed the priority of information technology in art education, it has not been sufficiently examined how the Internet is currently used by high school art teachers to enhance comprehensive art instruction. Therefore, this study would allow us to examine how the Internet is perceived and used by high school art teachers in the State of Missouri, and we can identify how the Internet can be employed to enhance art instruction with an emphasis on DBAE. To examine this timely issue, a mailed questionnaire was used as a research instrument. Five themes were explored in the questionnaire: access to the Internet in art classrooms, art teachers' perceptions of Internet use, the scale and scope of Internet use, the effectiveness of Internet use, and barriers to using the Internet. The questionnaire was mailed to a randomly selected sample of 400 high school art teachers in Missouri. The number of the respondents was 213 while the sample size was reduced to 349 when art teachers who had retired or moved were eliminated. This raised the total response rate to 61%. This study has contributed in the field of art education in the following aspects. First, this descriptive study focusing on the current status of instructional use of the Internet by high school art teachers in Missouri would serve as the first step for future studies on issues of the information technology. Second, the study also has provided a comprehensive understanding of high school art teachers' perceptions and usage of the Internet from the perspective of comprehensive art education namely DBAE. Finally, the study has shown to some extent how high school art teachers in Missouri implement a DBAE curriculum and teach visual culture by examining instructional use of the Internet.

The Internet needs no introduction, and its significance today can hardly be exaggerated. Today, more people are more connected technologically to one another than at any other time in human existence. For a large share of the world’s people, the Internet, text messaging, and various other forms of digital social media such as Facebook have become thoroughly woven into the routines and rhythms of daily life. The Internet has transformed how we seek information, communicate, entertain ourselves, find partners, and, increasingly, it shapes our notions of identity and community. The SAGE Encyclopedia of the Internet addresses the many related topics pertaining to cyberspace, email, the World Wide Web, and social media. Entries will range from popular topics such as Alibaba and YouTube to important current controversies such as Net neutrality and cyberterrorism. The goal of the encyclopedia is to provide the most comprehensive collection of authoritative entries on the Internet available, written in a style accessible to academic and non-academic audiences alike.

Abstract: Because of its far reaching impact on many aspects and functions of educational institutions and its potential benefits for educators, the Internet has been the topic of much interest within the educational community. Ways of using the Internet as a medium to deliver instructional materials and to access digital libraries are reshaping how college campuses function, including the creation of virtual campuses. The purpose of this study was to investigate the use of the Internet by teachers of English as a foreign language (EFL) in Saudi Arabian colleges of technology. A secondary purpose was to explore the relationship of teachers' use of the Internet with a selected set of variables. These variables included EFL teachers' personal characteristics, their level of access to the Internet, their perceived computer and Internet expertise, and their perceptions of the Internet as a tool for instruction. This study derived its theoretical framework from Rogers' (1995) model of diffusion of innovations. Both quantitative and qualitative methods were employed to collect data on the population. A questionnaire was developed and distributed to all EFL teachers (N=203) in the four main colleges of technology in Saudi Arabia (located in Riyadh, Abha, Jeddah, and Dammam) during the 2004-2005 academic year. Validity and reliability were established for the survey instrument. The return rate of the survey was 81%. The survey stage was followed by phone interviews with a random sample of 15 teachers. Results from both the quantitative and qualitative domains of the study indicated that the participants had rarely used the Internet, particularly for instructional purposes. Indeed, they reported more use of the Internet for personal than for instructional purposes. Participants had high levels of Internet use in mainstream Internet services such as e-mail and the World Wide Web. While they had positive perceptions of the use of the Internet as a pedagogical tool, they had relatively limited levels of access to and expertise with computers and the Internet. Positive correlations existed between teachers' level of use of the Internet and five independent variables, including computer and Internet expertise, place of access to the Internet, perceptions of the Internet, computer experience, and Internet experience. Multiple regression analysis indicated that only expertise, place of access, and Internet experience had a significant predictive value of teachers' use of the Internet. The results indicated that approximately 39% of the variance in Internet use was explained by the independent variables included in this study. A major conclusion of the study was that to increase Internet use, EFL teachers need to be given more Internet training. In-service training needs to be a top priority, with a primary focus on using the Internet as a tool for teaching and learning. Also, based on the study's findings, it was recommended that policy-makers maintain EFL teachers' positive perceptions of the pedagogical use of the Internet by spending more money on increasing the computer infrastructure in the colleges of technology in Saudi Arabia, on improving Internet access and services, and on educating both teachers and students with respect to issues concerning the cultural appropriateness of materials available on the web.
