Museums and the New Web: Online Forum

The Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) will be hosting a 10-day online forum starting Wednesday, September 6th. I will be moderating the forum along with Kevin von Appen and Ken Dickson of the Ontario Science Centre (RedShiftNow), Bryan Kennedy of the Science Museum of Minnesota (Science Buzz), and Rick Bonney of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology (Web Designs for Interactive Learning: WIDL). All of us contributed to the July/August issue of ASTC Dimensions magazine.

The forum will focus on how science museums and others can take advantage of “Web 2.0” concepts and technologies. Participation is open to staff of ASTC-member organizations and individual subscribers to ASTC Dimensions. To participate sign up at ASTC Connect by September 1. Also, if you’re interested, my article, Museums and the New Web is available on the ASTC website.
