The National Museum of the American Indian is at the forefront of educational technology, as they are a relatively new museum and part of the Smithsonian Institution.
- What if any educational material and support are there on your museum’s website?
- There are two online interactive virtual tours done with school children that aren't linked to directly from the site.
- There is a section for Educators & Students with links to:
- Classroom lessons, organized in to 4 categories: nation or region, theme, Thanksgiving, and history
- Online collections
- Teacher workshops in DC
- American Indian Responses to Environmental Changes site
- Story Project Planner (interactive for students)
- Shared Stories Gallery (for teachers to upload student projects)
- "Did You Know" type of FAQ section about Native Americans
- Do All Indians Live in Tipis book, published by NMAI
- Resources: index of resources, books, links for an "electronic field trip", NMAI topical websites
- Is it aimed at teachers, students, …?
- Is there evidence of interaction with teachers and/or school students?
- Not that I have found yet. There is a method for teachers to upload to the Shared Stories forum, but so far there is only an example in there.
- What educational features could usefully be added?
