The multimedia Experiences portal of EDI brings together case studies from member institutions and individuals describing educational programs and tools that address the urgent topics of Accessibility, Diversity and Inclusion, and Sustainability. The Agora portal of EDI presents bi-monthly discussion forums centered on these topics led by international experts from the EDI network. The Research Lab compiles and shares multimedia resources to support the development of cross-cultural mediation tools and programming to allow for greater cohesion in an increasingly diverse yet increasingly divided society. The EDI platform and its research methodologies will follow thematic strands that will be expanded to further topics as it develops.
EDI is developed by an international interdisciplinary working group of a Scientific Committee and Ambassadors collaborating to develop research-action activities, protocols, scripts, tools, applications and demonstrators towards innovative and inclusive educational methodologies involving the various players from the cultural community with a diverse representation of educational models and institutional scales. The work of this group seeks to contribute to developing ethical guidelines on digital museum education, distance learning, artificial intelligence, and on the use of data in teaching and learning for operators and educators, with an emphasis on cross-cultural collaboration. EDI intends to generate a reflection on, and an experimentation of, a new dimension of digital museum education.
