Above is the video preview of my new audio podcast launching in May, Object-Oriented, about digital learning in collections-based museums. I’m so excited! The first podcast will launch in May. You can read more details about it here (or below) and follow it on Twitter at @OOriented.
OBJECT-ORIENTED: Digital Learning in Collections-based Museums is a new podcast exploring key concepts within digital learning pedagogies by highlighting examples within Natural History museums around the country.
OBJECT-ORIENTED is lead by three museum educators: Rik Panganiban (Senior Manager of Digital Learning at the California Academy of Sciences), Eve Gaus (Digital Learning Manager at The Field Museum), and me, Barry Joseph (Associate Director of Digital Learning at the American Museum of Natural History).
We all hope it will be be of interest to professionals interested in informal youth learning in science centers and natural history museums, as well as digital learning in general.
Each podcast will open with a welcoming segment. The main feature of each podcast will explore one topic incorporating a live guest or pre-recorded interview (many originally recorded for the Mooshme blog) along with commentary and highlighted museum examples. Each will end – wait for it (SO excited!) – with a visit by Elizabeth Merritt, the Founding Director of the Center for the Future of Museums, to help us trend watch.
Until we launch in May, please send us a note of welcome in the comments below or suggestions for topics or programs we might cover in future episodes.
