A platform bringing museum resources into the classroom for K-12 Educators and students

Share your digitized collections with K-12 students and teachers on! Easy, teacher-vetted templates allow you to create dynamic, interactive content that is free and ready for classroom use. Museums of all sizes, types, and locations are welcome!

Museums for Digital Learning (MDL) is a collaboration of the Institute of Museums and Library Services (IMLS,) Newfields, the Field Museum, and History Colorado. The project brings together museums of various disciplines, sizes, and geographic regions to contribute to a shared digital platform offering K-12 educational resource kits developed from museum collections.

Resource kits are searchable by subject and grade, are linked to educational standards, and include activities such as narratives, slide shows, timelines, and games.
