    • 1. Illuminating Cumberland Island: Interpreting a Heritage Trail using Portable Electronic Technology Terminal Project Proposal Presentation Historic Preservation Program Sarah Helwick Lisle 22 February 2007
    • 2. Cumberland Island: An Introduction
    • 3.
      • Research interpretive methods by National Parks for historic sites
      • Determine how portable electronic technology can be utilized as an educational tool
      • Identify and explain appropriate evaluation methods for the exhibit
      • Research the five periods of cultural history of Cumberland Island as identified by the park service
      • Create at least one portable exhibit complete with scripts, images, and interactive content accessible by a website
      Major Goals and Objectives
    • 4. Portable Electronic Technology and M-Learning M-learning is the term given to the delivery of training by means of mobile devices such as Mobile Phones, PDAs and digital audio players. M-learners are seeking lessons in small, manageable formats that they can undertake when it suits them. From Wikipedia.org
    • 5. The portable exhibit
      • Exhibit Downloaded from Website ( Civil War to Civil Rights: Downtown Heritage Trail )
      • Audio Content
      • Visual Content: Still Images and Video
    • 6. Reasons for Engaging in this Topic
      • Cost-effective
      • Little impact on landscape and historic resources
      • Tailored interpretive planning
      • Access to remote sites
    • 7. Key Questions and Issues
      • What methods are currently used to interpret historic resources in National parks?
      • How is portable technology being utilized as an educational tool?
      • What methods are currently being used to interpret the history of Cumberland Island?
      • What are Cumberland Island's interpretive needs?
      • How can these needs be met using portable technology?
    • 8. Project Scope and Limits
      • Focus on historic, not natural resources
      • Focus on one period of cultural history
      • At least one exhibit will be created complete with website that includes maps, instructional informational, and downloadable content
      • Website will establish framework for the addition of future exhibits
    • 9. Student's Current Level of Preparation .
      • I have a general knowledge of the history of Cumberland Island and have visited many
      • times. I have been in contact with the park and they are very supportive and
      • excited about the potential of this project. A research trip will take place in late
      • March. At the park I will evaluate the site and its resources to establish the trail and
      • determine stopping points. With a background in education and website
      • development, I am prepared to create an educational exhibit as well.
    • 10. Methods to be Employed
      • Research interpretation theory and methods
      • Research theory and methods of mobile learning
      • Conduct site evaluation to determine way-finding and stopping points
      • Develop audio and visual components for portable exhibit
      • Develop and design website to house downloadable material
    • 11. Intended Audience The main audience for this project is the staff and visitors of Cumberland Island National Seashore, the National Park Service, and other practitioners of education and interpretation.
