Virtual Destinations and Student Learning in Middle School: A Case Study of a Biology Museum Online

by Mindi Donaldson


Educators increasingly leverage the internet to enhance traditional programs and approaches. One strategy in this respect is to employ virtual destination sites for curriculum delivery which are embedded into traditional learning experiences.

Virtual Destinations and Student Learning in Middle School provides the most detailed case study of such an approach ever undertaken. It examines the impact of an online museum called Museum Explorer! on middle school students’ knowledge and learning engagement when combined with traditional pedagogy.

This book provides important results and implications for any educator concerned with improving learning outcomes. In addition, the combination of empirical data with fascinating insights makes this work a beacon that will guide educators in their curriculum development efforts.
