The National Girls Collaborative Project and the Children's Creativity Museum is offering a training to educators to participate in the Smithsonian Latino Virtual Museum (LVM) Transmedia Project.  

The LVM is a Transmedia hub for 2D and 3D collections, online games, simulations, and virtual worlds and programs in real-time. The resources highlight the Smithsonian art and science collections as they relate to Latinos.  The LVM developed an Educator Toolkit to support educators with integrating this robust collection of transmedia and virtual exhibits into their existing STEM +Arts programs.

The toolkit includes six bilingual modules that explore three themes:

  • American Experience

  • Sustaining a Bio Diverse Planet

  • World Cultures

The training will include:

  • In-depth review of LVM Educator Toolkit and overview of the six modules and interactive tools available

  • Step by Step Training of the Day of the Dead module

  • Step by Step Training of the Eco Explorers Investigate the Water in My Community module

Criteria and commitment to participate in Educator Training:

  • Access to computers and internet to fully utilize the transmedia resources in your classroom

  • Implement at least one LVM module into classroom or program curriculum in Fall 2015 and/or Spring 2016 that has Latino students

  • Provide feedback and share implementation (curriculum, photos, lessons learned, etc) of LVM into your classroom/program with us

No cost for training and access to all LVM materials including the Educator Tool Kit
