|PaikBot at a stockton tricking session by @Gronnana|
My goals were to urge the students to explore the web resources typical of a large national museum, and to gain an understanding of some of the ways art and art worlds are changing in the digital age. To counteract the tendency of large lecture courses to create passive recipients, I designed the assignment to urge students to participate in art worlds - and to be a part of American art history - by creating and contributing. We had research projects and presentations, but I wanted them to experience new media as well.
