Building a Virtual Museum on the History of EdTech: October 1-21, 2008

Building a Virtual Museum on the History of Educational Technology: October 1-21, 2008
Facilitator:Richard SchwierRichard Schwier

The idea for this seminar topic emerged from a simple tweet: " i'm thinking we need an online museum on the history of educational technology George Siemens: 01:54 PM July 24, 2008".

So let's build one already! This 3-week seminar discussion will combine virtual tours, presentations, and wiki-building to gather together our best and worst recollections and artifacts.

University of Manitoba's Learning Technologies Centre, SCoPE, and Richard Schwier from the Educational Communications and Technology Program at the University of Saskatchewan have initiated this project to create a freely accessible "museum of educational technology". There's much to be learned from using a wide lens, and inviting international perspectives.
