A long-term partnership between the Smithsonian Center for Learning and Digital Access and the Fairfax County Public School Family Literacy Program has shown that art and technology projects can provide a bridge that brings the whole family to the museum while developing literacy and technology skills, building confidence, and strengthening family bonds at a crucial time in children’s lives. This hands-on workshop shares best practices and research, and breaks down the individual components of the projects to guide participants in developing engagement programs at their unique venues.
