I think it is important to incorporate technology for several reasons. One is that the world wide web is a database of all sorts of information that might help your students and you when you prepare. Another reason is that you need to guide them in how to do this research by suggesting blogs, online magazines, artists web pages etc. You can also show them videos of artists talking about their career or explore new media and techniques. Finally you can create as a group an online platform to share images or use one that already exists like flickr or Pinterest.
