This is the part of the emails where I start talking in the first person and tell you all the cool things I did in my project “Happy Science” that exemplify this email’s subject area.
I created a website to be a virtual gallery for my students’ final data art pieces. To structure in some accountability, I created the website at the start of the project and created a space for each person’s work to be displayed. As I mentioned earlier, I also reached out to the information designers who inspired the project and one of them agreed to share student work on her social media account.
Similar to how I planned in-person exhibitions, I created student-led exhibition teams to support event planning. I identified different roles students could play depending on how much extra bandwidth they had (literally and figuratively). For example, I had a group of students working to design a media campaign with images that could be shared on different platforms. Finally, I set up an event with Eventbrite so students could see their audience grow in-real-time as they prepared to exhibit their learning.
