Transcript of Insta.ed: Learning from Instagram
Fall 2011 In September 2011, the Smithsonian Institute's EdLab challenged twelve musuem studies grad students to “Think Different” and re-imagine learning in a 21st century world. The Tools The David Wax Museum These are some people that inspired me . . . The Approach The Practice Some Conclusions This purpose of this project was to recast museums as participatory learning environments How can museums use new media to support visitor engagement and personal meaning making?
