Beyond the Field Trip: Connected Learning in Museum Spaces


Beyond the Field Trip: Connected Learning in Museum Spaces

Barry Joseph, Associate Director for Digital Learning, American Museum of Natural History
Tom Murray, Director of State and District Digital Learning, Alliance for Excellent Education

Please join the Alliance for Excellent Education in a webinar that continues a series on connected learning and the digital transition. This Google Hangout will explore how museums are going beyond the field trip to become hubs of learning, innovation, and creativity.

The American Museum of Natural History in New York City is at the forefront of this work, where Barry Joseph is working with young people to build video games to complement new exhibits, using Minecraft as a springboard to science, and creating other learning opportunities that encourage students to explore their interests.

In an interview with Tom Murray, Mr. Joseph will provide his perspective on ways learning can take place in museums and other out-of-school places, and share how educators can both integrate museum resources into their teaching and be inspired to try approaches in their own classrooms. Mr. Murray will also solicit questions from the audience and share his own perspective.
