The EdLab Effect: "Be the Change"
The EdLab is a current, three-year initiative at the National Postal Museum incorporating new technologies and 21st century skills into classroom teaching. The program provides teacher workshops that connect Smithsonian collections to classroom content using new media tools. Educators in the workshops develop teaching skills through the lens of new media and produce mission-focused lesson plans for use in their classrooms. These missions and practices will be posted online, broadening access to educators across the nation.http://www.npm.si.edu/edlab
