I’ve been having great discussions with MAAS educators and the communications crew about audience engagement with social media. Particularly from the education stance and illuminating the unique learning that occurs. We have been thinking about how to engage teachers, students, museum educators, and learners as a whole. How could we do this?
One hashtag that has a profile online, although US dominate, is #musuemed. What if we leveraged this profile and created a hashtag called #museumedoz? Would this engage an audience of educators – in schools and in museums to engage in conversations through the platform of Twitter? If the focus is on museum learning there would be an open dialogue created that provided opportunity to engage in real time two-way conversations that explore the various aspects of object based pedagogy, learning in museums, school visits, public programming, learning with objects, curriculum, museum educator roles, discussions on various approaches or curriculum ideas. Underpinning this would be building the capacity to engage in cultural participation from an education stance.
Would we showcase various museums?
Would we have guest hosts?
Would we have a dedicated time for an online discussion?
What do you think? What is your initial reaction?
