The Four Directions Project has been working with American Indian Schools to explore
the uses of technology for culturally responsive teaching. One approach Four Directions is
exploring is school-museum collaborations for student-created virtual museum projects. A Four
Directions Model for school-museum partnerships has emerged from these experiences. Two
example projects are described and the benefits of virtual museum projects is discussed.
