  10. 13. “ I enjoy using computers and digital technologies to learn because there are so many possibilities and it is a lot more interesting than a pen and paper. But technology can be tricky and break down very easily and it isn’t always reliable. But with technology almost anything can happen.”
  11. 14. “ I don’t really see how you can use things like MySpace, YouTube etc. Most people would not even consider watching a video from the Museum. I think the best thing to do would be to keep the Museum Web site always up to date and accurate. Make sure it comes up the top of search engines, with actual paging. People never click on the sponsored links.”
