    • 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

      • 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
