Personalized Learning: How to Discover the Tools That Will Enable Teachers, Students, and Everyone to Find, Understand, and Adapt Museum Resources (...Or How to Accept Responsibility in a Digitally-Enabled World)

A session at MCN 2012

Friday 9th November, 2012

1:30pm to 2:00pm (PST)

Museums, scientific, and cultural institutions must play a major role to ignite a new generation of creativity-based, personalized learners. As more institutional assets are made or born digital, we, as technologists, educators, and communicators must expand our focus to understanding our user needs beyond findability and offer the tools that allow them to understand and then adapt our content, whether through the building of new tools or the sharing of our content in platforms where these tools exist. The Smithsonian Center for Education and Museum Studies will present a multi-phased research and evaluation-based strategy that addresses their Institution’s need to update their relationship with educators, to change online users of museum assets from passive recipients of prescribed content into active creators of digital resources personalized for learning in their own classrooms.
