      New Webinar Series

       

      You’re invited to attend a new series of webinars Virtual Museum Resources.

       

      On the third Tuesday of each month a different museum will showcase online programs and resources that can enrich your classroom.  Attend one webinar, or attend all. Each month features a different museum.

       

      Join me, Tom Diener, webinar host, for this month’s webinar featuring the Deep Earth Institute’s JOIDES Resolution Program. The JOIDES Resolution is a seagoing research vessel that drills core samples and collects measurements from under the ocean floor, giving scientists a glimpse into Earth’s development. Scientists aboard the ship teleconference with K-12 classrooms around the world. See how you can bring this exciting program into your classroom. http://joidesresolution.org/

          Tom,

           

          Will the webinars be recorded? My son's opening baseball games is the evening of March 20. Thanks.

            There might be a little confusion about the March 20th Museum Resources Webinar. Originally The Science Adventure Center was scheduled to present. Unfortunately they can not join this session. Instead, The Deep Earth Institute’s will present their JOIDES Resolution Program. This is a VERY exciting program!

                Science-related museums are becoming a popular fieldtrip destination here in the Philippines. Is the Science Adventure Center you refer to the one in Honolulu (Bishop Museum)? Or is it the Adventure Science Center in Nashville, TN?

                Would love to join a webinar featuring science & technology museum(s).

                                The webinar this evening was outstanding.  The teachers from Colorado who signed in are so excited.  I'm getting lots of emails this evening.  They can't wait until next month.

                                 

                                Super resources.

                                 

                                Thanks so much of creating this opportunity for our cohorts.

                                      Thank you for a wonderful webinar experience last night, and special kudos to the entire team that coordinated the event.

                                      The resources were wonderful, and particularly enjoyed the built in "explore time".  [I usually "sneak away" during presentation to explore the tools, so it was nice to have permission this time!] Good presentation technique.

                                       

                                      I look forward to the next event.

                                        Hello Tom!

                                        Congratulations for coming up with this topic-- the webinars really connected us to the boat and the museum!

                                        Although I viewed only the recording, I found this whole idea of making connections truly inspiring.

                                         

                                        The 1st webinar on JOIDES Resolution demonstrated how powerful it is to bring in scientists' work into our educators' world.

                                        Reminded me of a lecture series we used to do for science and math teachers called "Frontiers in Science and Mathematics Lecture Series".

                                        Such face-to-face lectures can indeed take a newer dimension once aided by technology such as the webinar platform and websites that contain not just information about the research project/program but online resources for students, teachers and the public.

                                        The JOIDES Resolution webinar was even more powerful because it wasn't just a presentation that ended as a presentation. Being a real-life project, it provides teachers with plenty of opportunity beyond the webinar: the prospect of teachers joining an expedition (and what it could mean to their classrooms and colleagues upon return) is plain awesome!

                                         

                                        The 2nd webinar with Becky Ruderman from the Metropolitan Museum of Art was one of the best webinars I have attended (viewed I mean) so far. The presentation was so organized, pacing was perfect, content (i.e., the online resources and search/navigation tool) was unequalled, and the incorporation of individual exploration of the resources was well-timed, thoughtful and expertly done. And did you notice how well Becky used the chat pod-- quickly picking up answers/questions and directing attendees to use it as reply-board? Amazing! If indeed one gets a raise for having accomplished that-- she deserves two-ranks worth! I learned a lot not just about virtual museum resources but about how to give an effective webinar presentation. And I should also mention that the attendees were just as wonderful and should I say ideal: quickly responding to prompts, answering questions, making substantial concise comments, and volunteering help (Neil MacDermott). With regards the resources, I agree with Dyane that designing and developing such spectacular array of resources could only mean work and brainpower that's hard to fathom. Truly outstanding!

                                         

                                        Again, congratulations and more power to the team!

                                            Celia, Thanks for your kind words about the webinars. Amazing, that you got so much from just the recordings. I agree, both webinars were open ended, and provided participants with resources to use "the-next-day" with their students. Both the Deep Earth Institute and the Metropolitan Museum of Art are wonderful intitutions. Sharon, from Deep Earth and Becky, from the Metropolitan are skilled webinar facilitators. I enjoyed their presentations as much as you.

                                          I attended the first webinar and I really enjoyed the resources and opportunities for educators. Dyane and I shared it during the ntel Teach Live webinar and invited others to attend this webinar.

                                           

                                          Thanks for creating this webinar series. My future plans are to use museum resources to implement integrated digital media projects.

                                              Many thanks for promoting the Museum Resources Webinars during your webinar. I think last month's session went real well. Khadija Bashir already had a class connect with the JOIDES Resolution! I hope we have additional teachers and students make use of this wonderful resource. The April 17th webinar features the Metropolitan Mueusm of Art. I'm really excited about their presentation. The Met is one of my favorite musuems and they have extrodinary digital resources.

                                              I'm looking for some Revolutionary War resources for a MS history teacher. Are there any virtual museums or "experts" that might be willing to Skype in to the classroom?
