Teachers and Technology

Our friend Jamie Glavic of the Museum Minute blog posted some insight into two Twitter chats she’s scheduled for weekly : #edutues on Tuesday afternoons, hosted by@QueensMuseum (Queens Museum of Art ) and #mpossible, led by @SIEdLab (Smithsonian EdLab) on Thursday afternoons at 4pm.

Her words offer some insight and questions that we know vex museum educators and interpreters the world over:

More often than not…the role of technology in education – and highlighted the museum experience – is brought up. How do we help teachers? How do we create the best educational experiences possible? How do we make the information gained on a tour of our museum last long after the bus pulls away?

When I think about how we use technology in our education programs, I often immediately think of this famous quote from Apollo 13 , “Failure is not an option.” Neither is technology.
