For 2013, the Brown Institute will demonstrate to educators how the use of images can enhance classroom learning. No matter the medium, images can embody powerful messages and contain a wealth of information—from maps to political cartoons to prints, posters, and ads. The goal of this year’s Brown Institute is to introduce educators to the vast collection of images housed at the Library of Virginia and demonstrate how images can engage learners. In conjunction with several photography exhibits at the Library of Virginia, educators will learn about the value of images as historic documents, how they are created, and how to creatively engage a classroom of students with a thoughtful analysis of them.
The detailed itinerary will be available for review soon.
