Last Tuesday, Stan Silverman and Ed Murray presented at the Uncommon Approaches to the Common Core Conference at the New York State Museum in Albany, NY.  During the presentation they discussed how the Educational Enterprise Zone (EEZ) helps to support museums, libraries, science centers, and other cultural institutions build capacity to deliver programs using web-based distance learning tools.

They also discussed the project work that has been completed over the past two years through the IMLS funded Developing a Model for Museum Based School Partnerships grant program.  During the presentation, they highlighted some of the lessons that were created by grant teams.  All of the lessons from year one can be viewed on the resources page of the EEZ website.

Stan Silverman also discussed the upcoming STEAMed initiative and showcased the new STEAMed vehicle outside the New York State Museum.  Conference attendees were able to view the new vehicle as well as use the hardware and resources that are available.  More information about the STEAMed initiative will be available in the fall.
