Samuel H. Kress Lecture in Museum Education, "Museum Education and Progressive Values in the Digital Age" by Wendy Woon, Edward John Noble Deputy Director for Education, The Museum of Modern Art, May 11, 2012. Today’s globalized culture demands creativity and continual innovation from individuals as well as institutions. How can museum education foster creativity, both for onsite visitors in our galleries and for online audiences? Examining the history of museum education reveals that we may build upon the values of the progressive education movement to inspire our practice and reinvigorate our strategic thinking about future programming and new initiatives.
