Smithsonian Center for Learning & Digital Access

The Smithsonian Museums are an amazing repository of knowledge from the fields of science of history. Many of us, sadly, are unable to just head over to the museums anytime we want to learn something new or engage our students. Fortunately, the Smithsonian has established its Smithsonian Center for Learning & Digital Access, where educators, students, and families can access content, lesson plans, online exhibits, and other resources with just the click of a button!

By accessing the educators channel, teachers can navigate content by age level and subject matter. You can also access their professional development opportunities for teachers! It’s a great site for resources. Check it out!

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.
