Session: Exhibitor Presentations

How can museums use the Web for outreach education? As a new medium, the Web offers many exciting possibilities for interactive learning experiences. Educational Web Adventures has developed dozens of such projects for museums and distance learning programs. Our online activities have been praised by the American Library Association, which calls them “outstanding, clever and stimulating,” and by kids and educators around the world. In this presentation, we’ll demonstrate what we’ve learned along the way. Come see how we apply these lessons to take best advantage of the Web’s distinct strengths as an interactive, non-linear medium.
