This paper sketches some recent considerations regarding the need for information communication technology (ICT) in the broad context of education. It then notes the increasing emphasis on the attributes of computer technology in the field of art education before outlining an ongoing research project, which was designed to initiate, develop and refine ICT integration in art education within a specific pre-service teacher education setting.

Arda Culpan has a long term professional interest in pre-service teacher education, particularly in the area of visual art education. She has been researching the creative potential of information communication technolgy as a resource for students and teachers alike, particularly in the area of visual art practice. She had initiated and developed a program of ICT integration within art education courses at pre-service teacher level and finds the need to continually reflect upon and refine the course content and teaching strategies in order to ensure all pre-service teachers have optimum oportunities to develop skills in discerning use if ICT along side traditional modes of visual art learning and teaching. She is a longterm practising art. But although her own background in visual art is traditional, in more recent years she has been integrating ICT to extend her boundaries and thereby her expertise in teaching students in accord with the current demands of graduate teachers.
