Tech Tutorial: Distance Learning: Near and Far, for Museums Big and Small
Media and Technology, Small Museums
Georgia World Congress Center  Sunday   2-3:15 p.m.   B208
Effective distance learning doesn’t require complicated equipment, elaborate lesson plans or expensive software, and it’s not just for school tours or MOOCs. Bayou Bend uses simple and accessible webchat technology (e.g., Skype, Google Hangouts, Facetime) to engage volunteers and visitors with speakers across the street or across the world. A special focus on accessing difficult spaces will be demonstrated, making the session particularly relevant to historic houses, small museums and rural areas.

Tech Tutorial: The GIFs That Keep on Giving: Tumblr Strategies for Success
Media and Technology
Georgia World Congress Center  Sunday   3:30-4:45 p.m.   B208
Animated GIFs can bring your collections alive in engaging ways and can be used on many different platforms, though most prominently on Tumblr. Popular with visitors under the age of 25, Tumblr is a great place to reach younger audiences, yet only 3 percent of U.S. charities and nonprofits use it. In this session you will learn best practices and ideas for using Tumblr at your museum. But wait, there’s more! You will also learn how to make GIFs! Bring your laptop if you want to try it on the spot.
