Museums, Teachers, And Technology

  1. 1. Museums, Teachers, and Technology Mary Beth Bauernschub MSET 1 May 2010
  2. 2. Why museums and technology? <ul><li>Museums have a vast amount of primary source materials. </li></ul><ul><li>More artifacts/art on line than on display. </li></ul><ul><li>Can reach patrons around the world searching for primary source materials. </li></ul><ul><li>They have the research done about the artifact by telling who, what, where, and when the artifact was created as well as how it was acquired. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why museums and the teacher? <ul><li>Offer workshops, seminars, institutes, and tours to show how to access and utilize the material they have to offer and strategies to teach using the artifacts/art. </li></ul><ul><li>Often low price or free. </li></ul><ul><li>Get free stuff like books, thumb drives, posters, and videos. </li></ul><ul><li>Get professional development hours or credits. </li></ul><ul><li>Create lessons or material to use and access to others’ work in your group. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Museums 2006-2010 <ul><li>The Walters Art Museum </li></ul><ul><li>Baltimore Museum of Art </li></ul><ul><li>The Library of Congress </li></ul><ul><li>Smithsonian American Art Museum </li></ul>
  5. 5. The Walters Art Museum <ul><li>Revive, Contemplate, and Integrate, Fall-Winter 2008-2009 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Attended workshops on unit writing </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Worked with a partner </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Wrote a unit for the Walters’ Web site </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Did the unit with students </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Presented the product to other teachers </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. The Walters Art Museum
  7. 7. The Walters Art Museum <ul><li>PRIMARY SOURCE INFORMATION </li></ul><ul><li>Diptych with Mary and Her Son, and Apostles and Saints George and Theodore </li></ul><ul><li>Artist: Follower of Fre Seyon (Ethiopian, late 15th century) </li></ul><ul><li>Date (Period): late 15th century (Medieval) </li></ul><ul><li>Medium: tempera on wood </li></ul><ul><li>Measurements: left panel: 8 7/8 x 7 13/16 x 5/8 in. (22.5 x 19.8 x 1.6 cm); right panel: 10 1/16 x 7 3/4 x 11/16 in. (25.6 x 19.7 x 1.8 cm) </li></ul><ul><li>Description </li></ul><ul><li>The Christ Child touches his mother's chin with a gesture of affection that was probably inspired by 15th-century Italian paintings then greatly admired at the Ethiopian royal court. Victorious saints on horseback, like George and Theodore at the right, had great appeal for the upper classes of Ethiopia, where noblemen were trained in horsemanship and combat. The artist is most likely a follower of Fre Seyon, the celebrated 15th-century painter who left only one signed work. </li></ul>
  8. 8. The Walters Art Museum <ul><li>Intense workshop on “How to Plan Backwards” with museum and Young Audiences of Maryland staff </li></ul><ul><li>Toured museum with partner to select appropriate material </li></ul><ul><li>Assistance from staff as we began the plan </li></ul><ul><li>Wrote the unit for the web site </li></ul><ul><li>Tested the unit on Regina’s 2 nd Graders </li></ul>
  9. 9. The Walters Art Museum <ul><li>Technology Used </li></ul><ul><li>To create the lesson, we found the images on the Walters’ site and printed them out in full color for the students to study. </li></ul><ul><li>A digital camera was used through out each session to record what students were doing. </li></ul><ul><li>As a final way of assessing what the students learned, we used a digital video camera and had the students describe what their final product was and how it related to the original piece of art studied. </li></ul><ul><li>The final lesson is on The Walters Art Museum’s website. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
