The project will benefit the national education sector by providing a model for museums to collaborate as a sector with educators and engaging them not just as users of museum content and services, but as co-creators and cofacilitators of student learning; a suite of curriculum enhancing and studentcentric digital collections-based educational resources; and an opportunity to pilot-test and improve the resources from the formative evaluation to better meet the needs of the nation’s learners.

The process evaluation aspect will assess the overall planning and implementation of the collaborative model of MDL between the partner museums and the educators, as well as the effectiveness of the training and ease of content contribution of the ten additional museums. Much of the front-end and user experience design of the MDL platform will be formed through the collaboration and cocreation process between the cooperator, lead museum content partners, and the team of educators.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Background

    The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source 
of federal support for the nation's libraries and museums. We advance, 
support, and empower America's museums, libraries, and related 
organizations through grant making, research, and policy development. 
Our vision is a nation where museums and libraries work together to 
transform the lives of individuals and communities. To learn more,

II. Current Actions

    The Museums for Digital Learning (MDL) is a project funded by IMLS 
that seeks to identify and test new ways that digitized museum 
collections can be made available in the form of engaging digital 
educational resources via a pilot digital platform to educators around 
the country seeking to engage their students with all subjects. This 
two-year project is being led by the Indianapolis Museum of Art at 
Newfields in collaboration with two museum content partners--The Field 
Museum and History Colorado and a team of K-12 educators. Once the 
pilot suite of online products has been created by the project team, 
they will be tested in the classrooms of the ten educational partners. 
Testing and validation of the content contribution approach and 
standard templates to the pilot platform will be conducted with a 
cohort of up to ten additional museums of various sizes and 
disciplines.
    This project aligns with IMLS's strategic goal and priorities of 
building the digital capacity of the sector. MDL will catalyze and 
empower museums to come together and create a national model with a 
shared vision to thoughtfully assess some of the critical gaps in the 
current platforms and digital access/use models, and then leverage the 
power of a shared digital platform to provide easy-to-access, 
interdisciplinary, and dynamic content from museums in digital format 
for educators and students.
    The project will benefit the national education sector by providing 
a model for museums to collaborate as a sector with educators and 
engaging them not just as users of museum content and services, but as 
co-creators and co-facilitators of student learning; a suite of 
curriculum enhancing and student-centric digital collections-based 
educational resources; and an opportunity to pilot-test and improve the 
resources from the formative evaluation to better meet the needs of the 
nation's learners.
    A product and process evaluation of the MDL project will be 
completed by a third party evaluator with experience in evaluating 
digital education platforms produced by the cultural heritage 
community. The process evaluation aspect will assess the overall 
planning and implementation of the collaborative model of MDL between 
the partner museums and the educators, as well as the effectiveness of 
the training and ease of content contribution of the ten additional 
museums. Much of the front-end and user experience design of the MDL 
platform will be formed through the collaboration and co-creation 
process between the cooperator, lead museum content partners, and the 
team of educators. The product evaluation will assess the ease of 
access and educational value of the collections-based digital education 
products for educators and students.
    This action is to create the overall evaluation plan, survey and 
data collection instruments and instructions for the various evaluation 
techniques to be used at different points in the development and 
implementation of the MDL pilot initiative for the next two years.
