As responsibilities and needs shift for the visual resource community, finding new, relevant, technologies for art history and other humanities can be a daunting task. Presenters will discuss using different technologies to expand the meaning of visual resource classroom support and the strategic role you can play to begin being to matchmaker and mover of technology in your institution.

Jonathan Cartledge and Andrew Maurer from the Imaging Center at Smith College will share the history and results of recent pilot projects in virtual environments and ArcGIS mapping for classroom use. Visual resource projects take on new forms from StoryMap presentations to virtual exhibition halls.

Chris Strasbaugh from the Knowlton School at The Ohio State University will be talking about how he saw Virtual Reality as the next great tool for education and how he created buy-in from vendors and the faculty to imagine what is possible in the classroom with the help of ever-important student ambassadors.
