Museum Exhibits

Create exihibits, diorama, science demonstrations, or other physical displays. Use a tool like Voki to create an animation with audio that can be placed on any page. Check out a Voki example. For instance, you could have small groups each work on a tabletop exhibit for their country. Then use Voki to narrate the exhibit.

Consider using a database like CultureGrams to collection information.

Audio Narration

Use a audio tool to narrative the exhibit.

For exhibit ideas, search online for sample projects you could use to inspire your own museum exhibit.

Consider using QR Codes and URL Shorteners. By including both, you have a human-readable as well as a device-readable link.

QR Codes

lizardYou can download a QR reader to your desktop or use a portable reader.
Go to Lizards Are Cool for an example.

URL Shorteners

URL Shorteners are useful when sharing long URLs in an exhibit.

Topic for Object-based Exhibits

For topic ideas, begin with a news article.
