My School at NM: Digital Learning & Engagement

My School at NM: Digital Learning & Engagement

Introduction

National  Museum  offers a unique rendezvous  with  ideas  and  experiences for people   of   all   the   ages, interests, capabilities, and  backgrounds. Museum education  enriches  their  experience  by  narrowing  the  gap  between visitor’s expectation  and  experiences  by providing  them  a  platform  where they  can develop  a better  understanding of the  museum’s  collection. National Museum constantly aspires to be a highly  interactive  space catering to the needs of multiple audiences. To generate interest towards History and Arts among the young audiences, National Museum has undertaken to offer educational programmes, which act as a medium for our young viewers to learn about cultures represented in the Museum through various antiquities,  oral  history,  while making the process informative, entertaining and fun.

To  fulfil the educational role of the institution, museum officials, staff members, and volunteers must work together to ensure a conducive learning environment, where  the   pedagogy  is  absolutely  oriented  towards  art integrated  learning systems.

National Museum has been developing online learning modules and delivering them through all social media platforms. This initiative, is an attempt at taking the NM collection to classrooms and homes, and reach out to learning centers across India.

My School at NM: Digital Learning & Engagement also focuses on  the NEP 2019 mandate that, ‘ Pedagogy must evolve to make education more experimental, holistic and integrated, discovery oriented, learner-centered, discussion based, flexible, and of course enjoyable’.
