There has been a lot of discussion of social media, the use of the internet, and how it affects teaching. A former student sent me this link about the Phillips Collection in DC and their creative uses of technology to connect the public to art. Thoughts? See the video clip from the BBC (about four minutes) here. I must admit that I cringed a bit when I saw how they’ve synched up Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boating Party, but then I thought, oh, why not?
We will be talking later this semester about ways in which social media can be used to reach students. More information to come – but the date will be Tuesday, October 26 at 11:30.
