I can't wait to share what I learned about this week during the Computers in Libraries Conference in Washington D.C.
I went to a presentation where Smithsonian was sharing their amazing educational resources. She also shared something that really caught my attention and I couldn't wait to dig into this one.
It is called Museum in a Box.
According to their website, Museum in a Box puts museum collections and expert knowledge into your hands, wherever you are in the world.
Museum in a Box focuses on actually touching objects in order to make connections as they learn about these museum artifacts within the collections.
Watch this video to learn even more.
Museum in a Box gives our children access to artifacts from museums around the world. This gives them a chance to connect with learning in such a powerful and meaningful way.
Someday they even hope to let all of us curate our own collections. Now wouldn't that be fun!
