I’ve never considered myself particularly “tech-savvy,” but recently I began to rethink that notion. Over the past year or so, I have been experimenting with technology. At first the whole process seemed counterintuitive to what we try to do as museum educators.

I was not sure if that could actually be accomplished online, but I was willing to explore the possibilities.
