The YOUmedia Learning Lab Network is a national, growing network of libraries, museums, and community centers dedicated to rethinking youth education. That includes implementing the "Mentor Model" where near-peer mentors—often artists, musicians, and designers—are brought in to guide youth in discovering and pursuing their own creative interests.
Join us for a look at YOUmedia Network's Mentor Model and how it has affected and changed the staffing models at three different institutions. Guests will also discuss implications for the classroom.
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

Can’t think of a better thing to do when hanging out in a super modern city like Seoul, South Korea then to go for a bike ride. It’s a great way to see another side of life here besides the typical tourist things like visiting temples, museums and going shopping plus it’s so up close to everyday life here.
I actually got my idea for this ride from the latest Lonely Planet Korea guide with a few modifications to the route. Let’s call them accidental modifications. I started out from Yeouido Park where you can rent bikes starting at 3000 won an hour, about $2.50 USD. Yeouido is considered the mecca for cycling in Seoul.
First stop was the Mapo Bridge where there is a designated cycle path making it safe and convenient to check out the views.
The Han River is the fourth longest river on the Korean Peninsula with a total length of almost 500km. This river was once a very large trade route with China through the Yellow Sea however due to estuary location at the borders of North and South Korea the river is no longer actively used for navigation.
An exit ramp from the other side of the bridge takes you to the north side of the river with great cycling paths. Keeping to the left on this path will continue your journey along the Han River. The destination for this cycle is the Seoul World Cup Stadium, built for the FIFA World Cup in 2002.
A great view of the beautiful domed National Assembly Building across the river. the legislative branch of the South Korean national government.
Keep riding along the path past this cliff and under the Yanghwa and Seongsan Bridges.

This week, Let's Talk Trains invites two different Railroad Museums to discuss their museums and their mission. The Georgia State Railroad museum will discuss their history and the future. The Houston Railroad Museum will discuss their plans for the future. Both museums will try and answer the perception of non railfans, calling some museums junkyards.

Holz Hollywood is the true Hollywood story of photographer George Holz. George Holz was born in Oak Ridge, Tennessee , graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California, and assisted for Helmut Newton, whom he credits with guiding his career. As a fledgling photographer, he lived in Milan and Paris, where he shot beauty and fashion for major European magazines such as Italian Vogue and French Elle. Afterward, he moved to New York City, where he set up his famous studio on Lafayette Street, traveling frequently to Los Angeles and Europe to shoot fashion, advertising, and portraiture for major publications such as Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar. His fine-art nudes have been exhibited in galleries and museums around the world. His shows have included “Original Sin” and “Three Boys from Pasadena – A Tribute to Helmut Newton” with fellow Art Center alumni Just Loomis and Mark Arbeit. Holz has collected a variety of prestigious industry awards over the years including a Grammy and a Clio. Holz works as an adjunct professor and lectures internationally at museums and universities, mentoring young photographers and passing on his photographic aspirations to “always begin and end with light, ” to “do it all in-camera,” and to “bring modern photography back to the level of the artful burn and dodge of the past.”Holz continues to travel extensively for his commercial work, fine-art shows, and lectures, and is currently working on several projects, including his upcoming book of nudes. He presently bases in the rustic Catskill Mountains of New York, where he lives on a farm with his family, two dogs, and flock of East Friesian sheep. When not exploring remote locations and photographing his muses, George’s favorite pastimes include traveling the American backroads in his '58 Airstream and conversing with his chocolate lab, Ruby.
