    Hi, everyone! I am updating the prep kit we send teachers for an on-site program. I figure this is an opportunity to think about “best practices” for prep materials sent to schools prior to their visit. Here are a few of my questions for you all:

    1) How important or valuable a piece of the program are the preparation kits?  I often feel like teachers don't use them.  But maybe that shows that I have not made them relevant enough!
    2) Are "paper" or "virtual" kits the way to go? 
    3) What makes a prep kit really good and useful?  
    3) Finally, is there any kind of great museum software for them?

    Thanks for any feedback.
