|Abstract: ||It goes without saying that, Africa and for that matter the developing world will have to embark on quantum leaps to catch up with the developed world. When the world has warmly accepted science and technology to change the course of doing things, most African countries are unperturbed and look on unconcerned. To mention a few, Africa continues to lose several of her heritages to the world outside Africa at this age - the intellectuals, cultural, mineral and human resources.
The primary concern of this project is to explore the possibilities of applying science and technology to the study of African art. This concern was expressed in the exploration of multimedia presentation as a viable alternative to the teaching and studying of African art. Also included in the study was the relative importance of the new technology in the preservation and promoting of the art of Africa.
The research revealed the indispensable contributions the new technology is offering to education in this modern age such as enhanced learning environment, digital imaging and data processing among others.
Chapter one outlined the objectives, scope, significance of this project among other parameters. In chapter two, a review of related literature was carried out to assess the need of the new technology in education and African art. The script for the presentation was considered under chapter three, with chapter four describing the details of the components and procedure. Chapter five discussed the results of the pre-testing, suggestions, contributions and conclusion.|
