Educator or Edupunk? Shifting Roles for Museum Educators Embracing Disruptive Technologies

A session at MCN 2012

Thursday 8th November, 2012

3:30pm to 5:00pm (PST)

This session identifies disruptive technologies in technology-based, experimental museum spaces as an evolved practice in museum education. The goal of this panel is to address ways to proactively identify and serve new audiences, and underlines how museum education departments are well-positioned to lead a radical charge for technology-based, informal learning, both online and offline.

Resisting non-productive or alarmist charges against the backdrop of the national education system in crisis, three museum-based case studies from the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and two others will demonstrate how radical practice within museum education are provoking revised terms for defining outreach, community, and audience through disruptive technologies.
