Walt Disney Hometown Museum

Log Number: IGSM-245302-OMS-20

Through the Here and Now! Initiative, the Walt Disney Hometown Museum will expand its education and professional development programs for rural educators. The initiative is the result of a collaborative partnership that includes museum staff, K�"16 educators, and others from the Marceline, Missouri, community. Educators will have the opportunity to participate in an immersive learning workshop program where they will experience and explore place-based learning opportunities alongside guided instructional planning. The initiative will solidify bonds between the museum and the community, as educators and museum personnel collaborate to strengthen their understanding of how local culture connects to learning.
