An Introduction to the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum's Teacher Toolkit
The Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum (LVM) is a transmedia hub for 2-D and 3-D collections, online games, simulations, virtual worlds and innovative programs in real-time, highlighting the Smithsonians' art and science collections as they relate to U.S. Latinos. The LVM is excited to announce the launch of their Teacher Toolkit that supports educators with integrating this robust collection of transmedia and virtual exhibits into their existing STEM +Arts programs, made possible with generous funding from Target. The toolkit and activities are aligned with Common Core standards, incorporate instructional approaches that cultivate 21st century skills, and teach career pathways in STEAM.
Join us to learn more about the Teacher Toolkit and hear from educators who have led these activities around best practices for integrating transmedia resources into STEAM programming for girls.
