Reema Khan and crew with Congressman Dan Burton in Indianapolis, Indiana

AAM is excited to share news of its latest production — a 12-part documentary series hosted by Reema Khan, one of Pakistan’s biggest actresses and directors, and a new resident of the United States.

The TV series follows Reema as she sets out to discover her new country through the eyes of the average Pakistani, testing stereotypes about life in the U.S. and exploring what it means to be an American.

She’s joined on the trip by AAM producer Katherine Gypson, cameramen Farhan Alam and Aziz Ahmed, and director Hasan Zaidi.

  2. It’s kind of terrifying to hear those stats… yet I’ve been henriag it for years now. at the Exploratorium has been for some time working with the Latino community here in the SF Bay Area. She would likely have insights into that particular demographic and may well know of research.One thing I found very interesting was when you ‘hosted’ the wiki pages as a part of Superstruct. Found that working with other people to project forward a picture and play out some real scenarios was both interesting and informative.The rest of the Superstruct experience was hard to follow, but I found that format focused & productive. Especially with how it was seeded.

  3. One great project of note reatled to getting kids to move is through Hope Lab. I co-designed an exhibit that was the culmination of contest where kids from around the world developed games with that need in mind. It was called “Ruckus Nation”. Hope Lab is using (and dissemintating) the ensuing research to create actual products. It was sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Hope Lab is doing smart, fun work in this arena. Links:

  4. Checking out http://www.einztein.com and working with Sakai have spurerd my interest in how museums might explore online education further, including possible collaborations with academia. Per my FB post, Einztein looks to me like a developing repository for uncurated online curricula. What are the implications for museums of this and like services? For universities to leverage obsolete online courses to promote those still active? For HR to vette & suggest appropriate courses as a means of cheap professional training/staff development? Until/unless cloud providers such as these build a credentialing process, how big is this market? Should museum professionals formally volunteer to be beta-testers?
