    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources

    in Education

    Museums are no dinosaur! Museums and new Instructional Resources.


    We've all experienced the museum as a place to go as a member of an elementary class or on a stormy weekend day. In the internet age, museums have an audience far beyond those who walk through the doors. Museums have a long history of creating resources to help teachers plan a class visit and materials for students that extend their visit into the classroom and home.


    In this show, we will explore a new generation of museums that provide rich experiences for learners that leverage the museums expertise and collections to extend their reach and impact on learners. We will hear how they plan and create those assets and discuss how they have or would like to work with publishers to increase the the reach and integration of their offerings into school practices. 


    Guests at the table:


    1. Kris Wetterlund, Director of Education and Interpretation at Corning Museum of Glass


    2. Dr. Marjee Chmiel, Associate Director of Curriculum and Communications at Smithsonian Science Education Center 


    3. Melissa Wadman, Manager of Program Evaluation at the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access

    "Table Talk" Study Hour - Episode 54

    in Education

    Ray Goodwin and Carolyn Yeager read and comment on the Sept. 5-7, 1942 and June 13-15, 1943  lunch and dinner table monologues by the German Leader, as taken down in shorthand by attorney Heinrich Heim. Included in this episode:



    The failings of monarchies, the stupidity of Princes - human need for an idol - courageous Munoz Grande;
    Stalingrad so strongly defended because of its name - Dutch interbred with Malays - Church put religion over race - our soldiers marrying foreign girls ends in catastrophe;
    Britons have no concept of chivalry in war;
    No mercy on schoolmasters - discourage competing museums in major German cities - wants a military museum in Linz;
    Nineteenth century was time of greatest German masterpieces in every branch of art - Munich lacked the necessary money to build quality edifices - men fight for the artistic and intellectual heritage of their nation;
    In defence of Metternich - Bismarck needed a war in 1866;
    Natural wonders of landscape attract people more than art museums - poor taste in art can be tolerated, but not depravity.


    The edition of Hitler's Table Talk being used was translated by Norman Cameron and R.H. Stevens, published by Enigma Books, New York, and can be found as a pdf here
