Stay Tuned for a New & Exciting Resource from Mystic Seaport:
The Online Learning Community Website
A community of practice among educators, students, and museum staff, the Online Learning Community Project (OLC) represents a shift from delivering content in a static, one-way manner to a more participatory learning model that fosters shared authority, merging the expertise of museum staff with the standards-based needs of classroom educators. In the OLC research and planning phase, Mystic Seaport worked with 140 educators and students in a series of co-creation workshops. Their ideas and feedback have shaped the development of the Online Learning Community Website, set to launch in late spring/early summer of 2013.
The new website will feature: artifact articles, living manuscripts, active maps, thematic resource sets, educator profiles & projects, online lectures, scholar interviews and more!
