Free Technology For Teachers: Click, A Crowd- Currated Art Exhibit

Click is a current exhibit available online from the Brooklyn Museum. Click is a collection of photographs that the museum is inviting the world to evaluate. Anyone, regardless of their art education or lack thereof, can evaluate the images through the Click website. The evaluation process is simple. All a user has to do is move a marker on a sliding scale to submit their evaluation.


The image below shows the sliding scale used to evaluate each photograph.


Applications for Education
Click could be used by art teachers as a discussion starter among students. Each student could evaluate a set of photographs and share their opinions and reasoning for each evaluation. Users do have to register to participate in Click, but the registration is quick and simple as it asks for nothing more than a valid email address.
