Teacher Workshops

Introduction to Videoconferencing with the Cleveland Museum of Art

Introduce your teachers or group to distance learning topics from the Cleveland Museum of Art in this half-hour program. Sample images and program content from two or three lessons of your choice. Discover which topics support your math, science, social studies, language arts, and visual arts curriculum.

During the school year, workshops are $1.00 per minute, or free of charge between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. They are also free anytime during the summer months.




DL and Your Curriculum

Explore ways to use distance learning (educational videoconferencing) as a component in a multidisciplinary classroom project that you design. This two-part series for high school or middle school teachers helps you navigate the museum’s website for visual resources, become familiar with our distance learning lessons, and start to build an “idea bank” for making videoconferencing an integral part of your curriculum planning. See how the Cleveland Museum of Art’s collection of paintings, prints, sculpture, and artifacts links to your creativity in teaching language arts, math, science, and social studies.

These two sessions should be scheduled to allow participants to complete assignments from the first session and museum staff to pre-produce the second session. Please allow an interim of two hours or more between sessions.
