Texts, tweets, likes, fans, instagrams.  It’s hard to keep up with it all.  AP Art Studio teacher Suzanne Zimmerman is following the trend though.  Using a web site called Today’s Meet, Zimmerman has her art students present their artwork orally in front of the class, while their peers critique the art work online.  Clarion was there to capture the lesson plan on video.
