For their final assignment, students will create a StoryMap of a single work of art and explore its relation to artistic technique, social history, and cultural context. This will be accompanied by a written project abstract and self-assessment of the creation and research process. Students will also be responsible for evaluating the digital contributions of their peers.
To facilitate this assignment, students will be asked to choose a single work of art from the British Museum, an institution that offers high resolution images for educational purposes. Once students choose their work of art, I will convert each one into a folder containing image tiles that the student can then upload to their individual campus-hosted Google Drive. From there, the creation process is self-contained within StoryMapJS.
