A Reflection for Art & Design Learning for Digital Natives


Education cannot be separated from rapid technological advances. One of the new paradigms in education is the use of internet network technology. This also applies to education in art and design in Indonesia. During the pandemic, the acceleration of the digital transformation of universities in this field is trying to adapt. Despite dealing with Generation Z who are part of a digitally literate society, the form of learning design seems to be shifting. Today's technology has changed the method of learning in art and design. The use of technology has become part of the creative process. Currently, they are dealing with changes from the physical form to non-physical, hand drawings into digital drawings, real practice into virtual simulations, access to cloud storage, and exhibition of artworks in virtual spaces seems to be today's normality. Higher education in the creative field is one of the important institutions that will have an impact on the creative industry in developing countries such as Indonesia. Therefore, this phenomenon needs to be explained clearly. By conducting a survey of art and design students with a certain generation age category, literature studies, and interviews this paper attempts to describe how these digital natives respond to today's art and design learning. These findings can be used as initial input for further research in future art and design education.
