Would the use of culturally responsive teaching (CRT) strategies while incorporating technology in meaningful way in a creative expression (arts) methods course promote learning? A core component of a creative expression methods course was to explore the distinctive or unique educational contributions the arts make. An additional expectation was that students would be able to use Web 2.0 tools (weblog) in an authentic assignment. Students found the arts helped elementary students understand and communicate concepts. Anecdotal evidence in blogs indicated the arts had positive impact on student learning. Students reported greater knowledge and skills resulted when they experienced the power of directing their own learning, and were able to change the focus of learning when it seemed warranted. It appears students will take these lessons into their future elementary school classrooms.
