My friends at the Field Museum are spreading the word that they are seeking to fill a Digital Learning Specialist position at this fantastic natural history museum in Chicago. Sounds like the specialist will need a background in a number of different kinds of social media as it pertains to youth and education, including virtual worlds, games and social networking:
We have launched a number of initiatives using multiple types of digital media to engage youth, with a special focus on teen audiences, in the nature of science and scientific inquiry. The Digital Learning Specialist will leverage virtual worlds, games, social networking, mobile technology, videography, etc. to develop experiences targeted toward youth.
The Field Museum is a great institution with a dedicated team of educators, technologists, and scientists interested in new ways of engaging young people in the sciences. For more info, head to the official site to apply: http://www.bfound.net/detail.aspx?jobId=98849&CoId=45&rq=1.
