Enhancing museum outreach through technology

Hello world!

Welcome to the Museums in Hand blog! Museums in Hand is a non-profit organization dedicated to expanding museums’ educational outreach through digital video technology.  During a time of budget cuts, consolidations and school closures, the arts and humanities are often the first to subjects to be lost. We strive to empower students to explore these independently by bringing exhibits created  for them, to them, in their own classroom.  We create a learning resource including a digital video of a local museum resources supplemented  with lesson plans and study material packaged onto personal tablets and bring the tablets to your school for student use.  As we team up with the National Museum of Mexican Art in the Pilsen area of Chicago for our pilot project, we want to hear from you! As educators in schools, libraries, museums, private institutions and more we want to know what challenges you face engaging students and what methods or tools you have found successful.
