What is engagement, and when is it meaningful? | Museum Questions - 0 views

  • Garry Golden commented, “There is always risk of being seen as trendy or just buzz– but ‘engagement’ is a huge concept being explored today by people across the learning world…. I think engagement is a concept worth exploring.” And blogger Gretchen Jennings responded, in a post on her Museum Commons blog,  that she has and continues to “[urge] museum educators to focus less on formal education materials and methods and more on interpretive planning in exhibitions and visitor engagement in the museum, both on site and online. So I have decided to explore engagement in more depth. What is it, anyway? What would it mean for the-profession-formerly-known-as-museum- education to facilitate visitor engagement?

    More good stuff from Geerat j. Vermeij, Distiguished Professor at UC Davis, also a blind geologist. Listening to a Tidepool is a great take on perception and worth the read if you're thinking to incorporate sensory experiences for the seeing and non-seeing visitor.

    Folks at any museum who are thinking about incorporating experiences for the blind should watch these videos - especially Describing Colors to Blind People, Intangible Concepts to a Blind Person, and How a Blind Person Uses a Computer. Lots of other good stuff here too, plus you gotta love Tommy's attitude.

An anthropologist explains how hackers are changing the definition of freedom - 0 views

  • Coleman argues that two cultures have been colliding in the United States for years — the culture of hacking and the culture of intellectual property favored by the entertainment industry. Yet this clash has taken place in the shadow realm of code, intellectual rights, and things that glow in the night. The combatants and their weaponry sport strange monikers: Warez, Debian GNU, SOPA. They are fighting for nothing less than what Lawrence Lessig calls the "future of ideas," what it means to be a free individual, and the nature of that elusive beast, software, which is pushing the wave of the future.
