“Integrating Authentic Digital Resources in Support of Deep, Meaningful Learning,” a white paper prepared for the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access by Interactive Educational System Design Inc., reveals instructional strategies and elements educators can use to develop students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills. The white paper explores the integration of digital museum resources with research-based educational approaches in K–12 classrooms to prepare students for college and life after graduation and presents easily replicated models based on an analysis of teachers’ uses of the Smithsonian Learning Lab in schools across the country.

The Learning Lab is a free online toolkit that enables teachers and students to find, customize and share digital resources with others. The Learning Lab provides access to more than a million Smithsonian assets, including images, artworks, video and audio recordings, text from books and magazines, games and teachers’ materials.
