Link - making museums into media educators

The aim of the Link Project is to establish the status of museums as media educators by improving the media education skills of museum personnel and by increasing collaboration between museums and other media educators.The project also enhances under twelve-year-olds´ media literacy.

The Link Project develops new methods and practices to support the collaboration by utilising shared expertise and participatory learning methods at events organised in cooperation with museums, schools, day care centres and other media education organisations.

The methods and practices are tested in everyday work at museums and collected for publication in the media education material produced for museums.

The project is implemented in cooperation with Association of Cultural Heritage Education in Finland. The duration of the project is 2013-2015, and it is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture.
