Rebecca Mir is dedicated to using digital and social media for educational good, and can be found on Twitter as @mirseum. She is an occasional contributing author to Play the Past where she writes about how (and why) artifacts and cultures are (mis)represented in video games, and how museums use games to engage and educate audiences. For more information about the digital media projects Rebecca has worked on, connect with her on LinkedIn.

Rebecca has been happy to serve with NYCMER in various capacities: first as Intern in 2011-2012, as NYCMER's Web Resources and Social Media Coordinator from 2012-2014, and now as NYCMER's Website Coordinator.

Since 1979, NYCMER has provided a forum for museum education professionals to address issues of museum and educational interest, exchange and disseminate relevant information, and to explore and implement cooperative programming opportunities through roundtable discussions, workshops, and an annual conference.
