Making Teaching Public, Chen Responds

by Milton Chen — March 15, 2007

Dr. Chen discusses how these multimedia exhibits enable a new form of discourse about teaching, valuing visual images and dialogue of teachers and students working in classrooms along with written commentary.

Dr. Chen recommends improvements to the “information design” of the exhibits, and points out the irony of using multimedia technology and the Internet to produce these exhibits, while the classrooms profiled do not have access to these same tools.
