Abstract

A dissertation study examined four cases of virtual museum projects involving Native American students who created virtual exhibits of objects related to their cultures at regional museums. They imaged the objects using QuickTime Virtual Reality and then researched the objects with the help of Native community members, their teachers, and museum staff. Qualitative analysis of several data sources revealed ten culturally responsive elements that emerged from the projects: "validating native culture," "community participation," "Native people saying who they are," "students as culture bearers," "partnerships with museums," "collaborative learning," "hands-on learning," "the familiar and the familial," "choice," and "technology."
