Thanks! I believe I first got wind of Museum 3.0 from a colleague, but it could have been a conference or one of my random google binges for research data. In any case, glad I found it and finally signed up!
I am very new to all of this! But very excited about it's possibilities. Time is the biggest problem that I have, but I guess that sums up all of us!
Thanks for your talk at the seminar in Melbourne.(sep) It was inspiring, and it is fantastic to hear many passionate speaker. I will keep you up to date about life in Canberra. There are a handful of us now that have joined the museum30.ning.
thanks for your welcome - I'll ask Lucy when you'll be around. I've been in museums for maybe 9 years now - majoring in education you might say, but recently am working full-time as exhibitons interpreter so am wanting to network and learn from others :-) Also I am very interested in web communities so this site is great!
Good to be here! The interpretive team here at Te Papa are doing lots of work in this area so its great to get involved and hear what the rest of the big, wide museum world are doing
Thanks for the welcome Angelina. Would love to do a post at some point - I found you via my seriously researched business partner Shiralee Saul who is also currently starting the RMIT creative academic journal - Second Nature. Really wonderful you have created this space!
My colleague Paul Swift mentioned the site some months ago. I was finally motivated to join following an inhouse session with Seb that I arranged for our staff last Wed. I then attended the NDF including the session about Te Ara and Our Space that you moderated. (I had some involvement in the early development of Te Ara). Sorry not to meet you at the conference, but hopefully in Melbourne next March!
Cheers for the welcome to 3.0 - I'm eager to have a good trawl through the site, it looks really interesting. The 'Programming across cultural boundaries' seminar went well. The podcasts are on the M&G NSW website if you fancy listening to them.
Jocelyn Cranfield pointed me in your direction as someone who is well conversed in Web2.0 tools. She said that you were looking for some input from schools in building an on-line community around Te Papa. This year I am an ICT facilitator working in Nelson and next year I am back teaching Year Four/Five at Appleby School near Nelson.
I had a museum posting back when I was in training college and really enjoyed the experience- getting beneath the veneer of the museum showcase.
