FACILITATING CONSTRUCTIVISM STUDY IN ONLINE MUSEUM VIA SOCIAL MEDIA

Cui Binyue, Yokoi Shigeki

Abstract

With the development of Web 2.0 technologies, online museums generally attract online visitors to constructivism study which is related but not limited to the physical experience in a real museum. Constructivism study theory indicates that the study will be happened most effectively when learners create physical artifacts or discuss with fellow learners around certain topics or knowledge. In this paper, we address integrating social media with online museum, forming the circle of attracting users, supporting communication, accumulating knowledge, disseminating knowledge via social media and then attracting more users. During this circle, facilitate users’ constructivism study by providing contextual knowledge relevant to a certain collection and make learning be a social activity via social media.
