HCLE Planning Section
The History of Computing for Learning and Education Virtual Museum has several main projects.
, and Disposition/Deaccessioning
Software Emulation - the "Play It Again and Learn" Platform
Oral History Project
Within each of these categories are several subprojects. They all play into various aspects of chronicling the ways computers changed how and what we learn, and they each provide a different avenue for people to explore.
Development of the HCLE Museum can be seen as a sequence of stages:
Planning (this page)
Proof of Concept
Collection (physical and digital)
Another take on Planning can be found
It is being created as a set of materials for a conference presentation at the
Museums and the Web Conference
in April 2014. (Well, that didn't happen! Liza and Tom went to the conference (it was great) but we didn't get to make this presentation.)
Finding Money to Follow
Our funding campaign has begun. We're pursuing grants, accepting donations, and have launched our
for substantial individual donors
Proof of Concept
The next stage is Funding the Proof of Concept or Prototype of the Museum. As of 2015 a web site incorporating the various elements of a Proof of Concept was developed. This iwill lead into the creation of a formal Design Document that will lead to a refined Proof of Concept and the subsequent Virtual Museum.
