ArtsConnectEd is an interactive Web site that provides access to works of art and educational resources from the Minneapolis Institute of Arts and Walker Art Center for K-12 educators, students, and scholars.
With Art Finder, ArtsConnectEd users can search over 100,000 of the museums’ digitized items including works of art, texts, audio and video, and interactive resources.
Art Collector makes it possible for users to save, customize, present, and share items in Art Collector sets. Everything can be commented on, tagged, and rated.
Ask an Educator allows users to submit questions about using ArtsConnectEd to real teachers who already use the site.
Through a train-the-trainer model, ArtsConnectEd is training teachers who conduct teacher workshops in their regions. So far, more than 3500 K-12 and pre-service teachers have participated in workshops focusing on the effective classroom use of ArtsConnectEd.
