Define Arts, Design, Media and Technology

Before researching on the internet, we defined the meaning of art, design, media and techonology ourselves.


  • expressing yourself
  • unique things
  • making it in a whole new way by using tools from our learning device to help us.


  • structure
  • making an ordinary and plain object look unique


  • software (example keynotes and pages)
  • using virtual applications
  • communication


  • using hightech equipments

After researching, we got the following information:


  • it is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.
