AP Art History Students Enjoy their Thanks from Google

A couple months ago, I took my AP Art History students on a field trip to the Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center. I decided to employ a bit of an experiment with them using Google Goggles - just to play around with the program and explore its potential for application in the classroom. I posted it in a blog post: “Field Trip Experiment – Kids Using Google Goggles at the Museum.”

That post was picked up by Google and I was contacted by their development team who was interested in how we applied this and where we saw it going. It was a great experience to talk with them. As a thank you, Google sent us some shwag to enjoy.

About Jennifer Carey

My name is Jennifer Carey and I am a student and educator of the human condition. I have long studied history, trained in archaeology, and found a passion in the field of education. As a long-time lover of technology (my father bought our family our first Apple IIe when I was three), I love technology and what it can bring to the classroom. I have taught at various Universities for many years as well as educating gifted teenagers through the Johns Hopkins program, the Center for Talented Youth. I am currently the Director of Educational Technology at the Ransom Everglades School (a secular independent school) in Miami, Fl. I also have a few educational podcasts on iTunes from my days teaching at TCU: The Ancient City of Rome, Classical Archaeology (2008), Classical Archaeology (2009), Introduction to Classical Myth, and Ancient Eats. They’re enhanced (so you get the PowerPoints along with the vocal), but please excuse the poor audio editing. Feel free to Email Me or follow me on twitter.
