Abstract

As the Virginia standards of learning continue to drive what children learn and what teachers teach, it is essential that researchers continue to explore diverse ways to deliver content that is required and engaging to students. Teachers also benefit when students come into the classroom already exposed to the content. This exposure provides students with a context for what they will learn and explore in the classroom. For the purpose of this study, the researchers collaborated with a museum located in Virginia. The researchers conducted 50 interviews with parents visiting the museum in order to identify what they thought should be included in a mobile app. The goal was to create a mobile app that children would use prior to visiting the museum and once they left the museum. Creating the mobile app provided an extra layer of content retention before and after the children’s visit to the museum.
