Museum Partner Projects

When students lead through learning, they make a real impact. 

The Digital Scholarship in Community Partnerships project seeks to engage Washington College students in authentic learning experiences by embedding technology-enhanced museum partnership projects into instruction. 

Through this project, students work in partnership with local museums to develop technology-rich outreach resources which help convey the message of the museum to the world.   Working with the museum affords students the opportunity to apply concepts and best practices learned in the classroom to a project that makes a real impact for the local community.

Resources created by students involved in the project are then leveraged by local school systems to develop instructional sequences that utilize these resources to meet state standards through the teaching of local history.
