Developing a Model for Technology-Based Museum School Partnerships
Sanger, Erika; Silverman, Stan; Kraybill, Anne
Journal of Museum Education, v40 n2 p147-158 2015
In 2012, The New York Institute of Technology and the Albany Institute of History & Art collaborated to increase the capacity of museum educators and classroom teachers to develop successful partnerships and deliver new programs through the use of web-based technologies. The project aligned the content expertise of museum educators from throughout the United States with the needs of New York State K-12 teachers to develop, test, and implement content rich classroom lessons that integrated Common Core Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics using three web-based distance learning tools: Safari Montage, BlackBoard Collaborate, and Moodle. This article addresses the successes as well as the challenges, from technical glitches to issues in pedagogical approach faced by participants, and suggests directions for the future of web-based museum program delivery.
