What are the right ways for museum educators to connect modern learning environments with historical collections? "One Wright Way: From Collections to Classrooms" suggests practical strategies and methodologies by which museum staff can develop innovative on-line presentations and programs that connect K-12 classrooms with the museum. As a particular case for consideration, The Franklin Institute's Wright Aeronautical Engineering Collection will be featured.
