Discover playful learning that encourages your child to wonder through creative, hands-on workshops led in real-time by Instructors from across the globe.
The Betty Brinn Children’s Museum just launched its brand-new platform for online education — Play in the Cloud powered by GLOMADO. Families, students and educators seeking creative and cultural enrichment opportunities can visit the platform and register for a hands-on workshop led in real-time by a Museum educator or a GLOMADO instructor from across the globe.
“We are proud to introduce our cloud-based platform that extends the Museum’s educational resources to children in the Greater Milwaukee area and beyond like never before,” said Museum Executive Director Brian King. “Play in the Cloud enables us to bring impactful Museum programming and authentic cultural learning experiences right to families’ homes, as well as to students who are doing in-class instruction or remote learning.”

Play in the Cloud workshops consist of hands-on arts, crafts and maker activities, including designing a robot, jewelry making, creating a journal, cooking and folklore crafts. Workshops are taught live by Museum educators and GLOMADO global instructors who represent more than 50 countries. All workshops are limited to six participants or less and many come with GLOkits, which contain the main workshop supplies, delivered right to the learner’s door.

“We’re partnering with the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum because they are at the forefront of innovation in the museum space. As an organization, they think outside the walls of their museum — they are tech trailblazers and creative visionaries,” said GLOMADO CEO. “Together, we’re working to reshape what a children’s museum can be in the digital age, and we could not have asked for a better partner than the Betty Brinn Children’s Museum.”
