Unpacking the “lack of time” barrier to using online museum resources:

  • Like everyone else, teachers will take the time to learn to use something they consider useful

Unpacking the “lack of time” barrier to using online museum resources:

  • Teachers say they don’t have any time. What they really mean is that teaching is an enormously complex endeavor, and trying to figure out a meaningful space to slot museum materials into is as easy as putting a camel through the eye of a needle.

Unpacking the “lack of time” barrier to using online museum resources:

  • Museums can help teachers create time to learn to use museum resources by offering teacher training courses and paying for substitute teachers

Many museum resources are not used simply because teachers cannot find them:

  • Can’t find them on the Web

  • Can’t find them on your Web site

Teachers never use lesson plans or other online activities as museum educators design them. Teachers almost always break these materials apart and select "pieces" that will serve their individual classroom goals.

Teachers view museum Web sites as authoritative sources, different from Google image search or Wikipedia

Museums think of constantly changing exhibitions and upgrading services to meet the needs of the repeat visitor and to tell the story of the museum over time.

Teachers use the same resources over and over as new students who have never experienced their lessons enter their classrooms each semester or year.

Why teachers use the Internet:

1. To find low-cost or free materials

2. To connect the classroom to the larger world.

3. To help teachers manage time more efficiently.

4. To motivate students.

5. To give students opportunities to learn by doing.

6. To expand opportunities for "telementoring"

7. To help teachers communicate, share experience and ideas with other teachers.

8. To help bring the school and the community closer together.

9. To help teachers spread good news about what's happening in their classrooms.

10. To "rejuvenate" teachers' professional lives.
