Statuesque: Digital Media Tours

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Nasher Sculpture Center is pleased to announce a pilot Gallery Teacher position that will supplement its docent program. On February 28, the Gallery Teacher began researching the Nasher Collection and work with Nasher Education staff on developing new teaching methods and materials. The main goal is to incorporate digital media directly into student tours by replacing hard copy docent kit materials with iPads to enhance in-gallery experiences and encourage more active participation. With the assistance of a grant from MIDEA, the Gallery Teacher and other Nasher Education staff will research and develop new ways of using iPads on student tours during the run of Statuesque, the Center’s next exhibition.
