VOXPOP FOR MUSEUMS
BRING THE POWER OF ROLE-PLAY INTO
Using the VOXPOP platform, we can help you create dynamic new educational programs for your visitors.
We have worked with museums to develop immersive educational programming for visitors.
For example, we worked with Revolutionary Spaces to develop Revolution is Brewing, a 90-minute experience for students grade 8 and up about the aftermath of the Boston Tea Party. Twelve to forty participants take on the roles of British subjects across the political spectrum. Visitors to the the Old South Meeting House can play Revolution is Brewing in the very room where the Boston Tea Party began. School groups can also sign up for a virtual session that can be played in the classroom.
Are you looking for new ways to have visitors engage with your organization’s unique vision and mission? Get in touch with us. We love working with museums to bring new ideas and perspectives to life through play.

ACTIVATE YOUR SPACE THROUGH PARTICIPATION
Role-play brings a space to life by turning visitors into active participants. Participants learn about the content, not just by reading and listening, but through their own voice and decisions.
ENGAGE WITH A VARIETY PERSPECTIVES
Role-play asks participants to try and see the world through a different perspective. This is a valuable skill not only for developing empathy, but for figuring out how to work with others.
FOSTER LEARNING & DEEP CONNECTIONS
As participants move through a role-play, they take in different information and then share it with each other. This fosters an environment of critical thinking, collaboration and knowledge sharing.
WHAT TEACHERS SAY
I used several of the VOXPOP activities with my high school students, with impressive results. As a thirty-year veteran educator, I have used a number of interactive activities, none matching the level of engagement I observed in my students. Most importantly, the VOXPOP activities reinforce Deep Learning as outlined by the global partnership, New Pedagogies for Deep Learning (NPDL). Through these activities, students have the opportunity to develop the Six Global Competencies of Character, Citizenship, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity and Critical thinking in a way that they find enjoyable - a teacher's dream!

HOW THE VOXPOP PLATFORM WORKS
Our software aids facilitation, coordinates participants and delivers media.
We can work with you to create the right solution to fit your needs.
We can provide existing VOXPOP content for use in your space.
We can create new content for use in your space and in classrooms.
DEVELOP CUSTOM EXPERIENCES
We can develop fully-customized experiences that leverage the VOXPOP technology platform to create unique educational offerings.
For each VOXPOP, we apply our expertise in content and software development. This includes:
We work with our partners to understand their audience and goals. Then we work together to outline a project scope that meets those goals.
RESEARCH & WRITING
We research the content & work with our partners to make sure we're telling an accurate and compelling story. Then we write content for the role-play including video scripts, profiles, explainers, glossaries & discussion prompts.
We collect primary source materials and use them to produce videos and images that build out the world for participants in the role-play.
We test the material with the intended audience to make sure it is understandable and engaging.
If our partner wants features specific to their content, we customize the VOXPOP platform.
