Teaching virtual or hybrid? Confused? Us too—come talk it through, access available resources, and participate in an artist experience!
Join the Smart Museum of Art and the Oriental Institute (OI) for a look into the resources offered to K-12 students and teachers for virtual learning. We'll be presenting short samples of our programming, including a virtual student field trip from the OI, interactive arts activities for classroom engagement, as well as a Teacher Workshop to help put it all into useable context. These short participatory experiences will provide teachers with an understanding of the types of live programming available.
