Digitally Staging Shakespeare in the Literature Classroom


Victoria Munoz, Assistant Professor, English, Hostos Community College


William Shakespeare’s Macbeth is a core text of the Columbia Core Curriculum, but it presents challenges as a teachable text. One teaching aid is the Globe 360 “Staging It” app, which allows students to stage a digital production of a scene from Macbeth on the iPad. This presentation will guide spectators through basic use of the app and present strategies for practical application, based on preliminary findings from an in-class demo of this technology. A major benefit of “Staging It” is that this app allows students to combine immersive historical study with close reading techniques.
