HI Angelina. I know you and I are going to talk more about this in a few weeks but a bunch of us started to think about what we might do as part of this project at our Museum Users Group (MUGS) meeting the other day.
First, we thought we would set up a closed ning network for all public programs staff to join (especially part-time and casual staff that work as interpretive staff, in Kidspace and in the education area) so that we could test it out as a communication and sharing tool via news alerts, an events feature and sharing documents and images.
Second, we might use the Museum's Artlink project as a way to develop social media tools for teachers, students, Museum staff and practising artists to contribute to as a way to extend the physical program (I'm thinking a blog and Flickr project here).
Third, set up a Facebook page for a few new exhibitions we are developing (specifically Climate Change and the Science Communication projects like Science in the City/Bush/Suburbs) to communicate information and seek input and feedback from people. I've already started some audience reserach experiments (reported on the Audience Research and Web 2.0 group page) so see this as an extension of that.
To achieve this I'm thinking a series of workshops where we go through the tools, talk about how we might best use them for what purpose, sign people up and start experimenting. I'm also thinking that our monthly MUGS meetings could now be a forum for feedback and sharing. I could document these and upload our progress here.
