IMLS Offers Online Hub for Educators to Get Museums' Resource Kits

IMLS introduced Museums for Digital Learning (MDL), a new online resource center that is geared to K–12 educators. Searchable by subject and grade, it offers activities drawn from the collections of museums of various disciplines, sizes, and geographic regions. According to the press release, “Working with K-12 educators, the [MDL] team created templates that would be easy for any museum to populate and add to the site as Resource Kits. There are now 23 museums committed to participating and 29 Resource Kits.”

Other museums are invited to contribute: “Resource Kits are made up of several activity types through which museums can choose to present their content. These may include narratives, hotspots, slideshows, annotations, timelines, games, and e-books. Museums decide on the number of digitized objects they want to use in a kit and the types of activities they want to include.” Multiple museums may also collaborate to create kits centering on a specific theme or topic.

For more information, read the press release.
