  • Scott and I work with so many museums, and notice patterns about what succeed and what fails when museum implement technology projects. We have our own theories as to how to predict success…
  • Original research, its approach to teachers innovation with what ever kinds of tech. The ARTStor study and its correlation.
  • VTS
  • “Socially savvy educators are much more aware of the potential for problems and can frequently negotiate compromises among the various stakeholders that smooth the way for successful technology experiences.”
  • MDL
  • A healthy human infrastructure would include flexible and responsive technical staff, knowledgeable colleagues who can help with the innovation, and supportive administrators.
  • Only one person is advocate and when that person leaves the project is trashed?

    • 1. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 Museum Educators Innovating with Technology Scott Sayre and Kris Wetterlund AAM Learning in Museums Seminar Friday, June 20, 2008
    • 2. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 What are the conditions for museum educators successfully innovating with technology in museums?
    • 3. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 Conditions for Classroom Technology Innovations Yong Zhao, Michigan State University, Kevin Pugh, University of Toledo, Stephen Sheldon, Johns Hopkins University, Joe L. Byers, Michigan State University Teachers College Record, Volume 104, Number 3, April 2002, pp. 482-515 ARTstor Study
    • 4. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 Museum Educators Innovating with Technology The Innovator (Educator) The Innovation (Project) The Context (Museum)
    • 5. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 ARTstor Projects Docent Project History Museum Video Conferencing Teacher Partnership
    • 6. The Museum Educator as Innovator
    • 7. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Innovator (Educator) Knowledge of the technology and its enabling conditions A Request for Proposals (RFP) that contained wildly varied levels of detail made it impossible to bid on.
    • 8. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Innovator (Educator) Pedagogy-technology compatibility In an ARTstor test, a history museum educator stressed her emphasis in bringing in resources from all disciplines to aid teaching history at her museum.
    • 9. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Innovator (Educator) Knowledge of the organizational and social culture of the museum Technology staff proposing a project that put technology in the hands of art museum docents. The educator expressed interest but knew the docents would resist.
    • 10. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Innovation (Project) Alignment with the museum culture Museum authority versus Web 2.0 The art mob and MOMA The Library of Congress and Flickr
    • 11. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Innovation (Project) Required resources are available: human, economic and technology Cell phone audio tours YouTube, Facebook, Flickr, etc.
    • 12. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Innovation (Project) Distance from the innovators current practices MDL teacher training. Teachers who succeeded were those who used Pachyderm to create resources for something they were already teaching.
    • 13. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Context (Museum) Technological infrastructure (facility, network, equipment, etc.) Museum educators would like to use YouTube videos in docent training but the IT staff of the museum has YouTube blocked because the network can’t support video streaming.
    • 14. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Context (Museum) Human infrastructure The first version of ArtsConnectEd placed more demands on the new media staff than resources were available. Solution: Recreate ArtsConnectEd so that museum educators are responsible for content.
    • 15. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Context (Museum) Organizational culture (support staff, policies and procedures, etc.) Cell phones and laptops are banned in some museum buildings.
    • 16. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 The Innovator Knowledge of the technology Pedagogy/technology compatibility Knowledge of museum culture The Innovation Distance from culture Distance from resources Distance from innovator’s practice The Context Technology infrastructure Human infrastructure Organizational culture Successful Tech Projects

    • 27. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 It’s Time to Calculate Your Scores…
    • 28. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 Scoring: The Innovator The innovator is the most important domain used to determine innovation success or failure. If innovator scores total nine or above, the project may well succeed even if scores in the other two domains are not as high. Score 9-12: Innovator’s strengths will likely steer project to success Score 5-8: Innovator should proceed with caution. If other domains have scores of 9 or higher, success is still possible. Score 0-4: Innovator may benefit from reflecting on the nature of his/her pedagogy and developing a deeper understanding of the proposed technology. An awareness of the social dynamics of the institution will aid the innovator in choosing the right innovation and the right time to introduce it.

    • 31. Scott Sayre & Kris Wetterlund Sandbox Studios/Museum411Learning in Museums 2008, June 20, 2008 Scoring: The Project Innovations most likely to succeed are those that have some connection to current practice or do not require significant leaps in technology acquisition for the host institution. The degree of dependence on other people also impacts a project’s success or failure. Research indicates that projects rooted in “evolution rather than revolution” have a greater chance for success. Score 9-12: This innovation is likely to be a timely step in the museum’s technology development. Score 5-8: This innovation may present significant hurdles during the implementation process. Innovator should question if strengths in other domains (Innovator and Context) are enough to overcome these hurdles at the present time. Score 0-4: The innovation is likely to present too many barriers to meet with success at this time. Examining other areas of current practice to identify projects that require smaller technological and pedagogical challenges may be recommended.
