82nd & Fifth from the Met: A Cool App for Art
Summary : Stop, Drop, and Appreciate Some Art!
82nd & Fifth from the MET showcases several dozen museum exhibits. After launching the app and selecting a language, users can view all the artifacts as a tapestry of images or they can tap the “Lined” button to view the artifacts by collection (e.g., Heroes and Villains, Faith and Devotion, Home Décor, etc.). Once users find an artifact of interest, they can tap it to view a short video about it. The videos typically offer a history about the artifact, commentary about its meaning, and different views of it. If users choose to, they can tap the “Star” button to favorite the artifact, tap the “Upload” button to share it via email, or the “Download” button to save it to the “My Episodes” feature. If an artifact is starred or downloaded, users can access it by tapping the “Lined” button and choosing the “My Episode” option.
- Teachers can let students pick an artifact, view its video, and then compose a response to it. The response can include why the artifact is significant, how the artifact represents a specific time period or culture, and/or other key information learned from viewing the video. Students can write their responses using an Office app and email their teacher the commentary or post it to a class website.
- After viewing a video about an artifact, students can conduct further research about it online. Students can create an annotated bibliography where they write a small paragraph that summarizes the information learned about the artifact from a source then list the MLA citation for the source. Students can write their annotated bibliographies using an Office app and either email the teacher their work or post it to a class website.
- If students are viewing an artifact that is a painting or sculpture, art teachers can have students recreate it. After recreating it, teachers can have students compose a short piece of writing where they discuss process they used to recreate the artifact.
- Teachers can have students view a themed collection of artifacts. In response, students can compose a piece of writing that explains how the theme unifies the artifacts. Students can use an Office app to write their paper and then email it to their teacher.
- Foreign language teachers can have students pick the language they are studying and then view artifact videos in that language. After viewing the videos in a foreign language, students can translate the meaning they learned from those videos into English. Students can write their translation using an Office app, and they can email their translations to their teacher or post them to a class website.
