My cohort recently took a trip to the Taubman Museum of Art in Roanoke, Va. Our task was to create a podcast that we could use in our classrooms to walk students through the museum…or be a “teacher in their pocket” as the students walked around the museum.
Thus, my group decided to create a podcast divided into chapters…with each activity a new room that the students would be entering.
Here it is…take a listen! Also, be sure to check out the museum’s homepage. They have a lot of cool interdisciplinary teaching ideas and the opportunity to use videocasts to bring the museum into the classroom is another great idea to think about.
