E102: Think Inside the Box: Smithsonian Libraries in the Classroom11:15 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
The Smithsonian Institution Libraries staff have been working on an ambitious pilot project to put the Libraries’ digital images directly into PK-12 classrooms across the U.S., with London-based company Museum in a Box. The pilot is designed to expand the Smithsonian Libraries’ visual literacy resource, I See Wonder, and connect students with a new object every day for a school year. Museum in a Box is a cutting-edge tool for object-based learning, where museum objects (3D and 2D) are fitted with sensors that connect with a computer in the box, called the “brain.” Touching an item on the brain plays back a story or fact about it, and the students can even record their impression back into the brain. Come try a box and hear about the project so far.
