21st Century Education Model: We Need Museums Now More Than Ever


The accelerated development of digital technologies highlights the necessary transformation of educational models towards one based on competencies and capable of breaking with linear and deductive thinking. At this juncture, museums are reconsidered and redefined as cultural spaces capable, from artistic practices and new technologies, of breaking with the linearity and rigidity of the scientific method. From the experience of the MUI (Interactive Urban Museum) in Puebla, Mexico, the case of educational innovation is analyzed from a new museology approach. In it, experiential and challenging learning situations are developed for university students who participate in exhibition projects and visual and museographic strategies with social impact. From the exhibitions produced between 2020 and 2021, it is possible to observe and identify a positive change in the domain of skills derived from artistic, museographic practice and visual content creation. It is concluded that this change in the level of mastery is related to the commitment that students develop with the projects, as a high degree of experimentation can develop in the museum.
