Students will be using Google Earth and famous museum websites to visit the most iconic historic sites to learn about history in a fun, interactive way. It will be like a school trip to a foreign country, but in a virtual way chock-full of historical background from an experienced history teacher. The focus of the course will be on how the images capture a period of history. First, there will be an introduction to a general overview survey of the histories/art/architecture of several key important civilizations. Then based on student voting, the class can delve further into a destination of their choice whether it be Paris, Rome, London, Kyoto or Beijing. This course combines elements of history with creativity and artistic expression.
A culminating project will be an art installation online using digital media for students to come up with their own creations for public consumption and critique.
