This is the second of three posts about the 2010 Horizon Report: Museum Edition which considers technology use in museum settings. This post provides commentary on the six significant challenges identified in the report.
“The Marcus Institute for Digital Education in the Arts (MIDEA), the museum-focused branch of the New Media Consortium (NMC), released the 2010 Horizon Report: Museum Edition. This specially-focused edition of the annual Horizon Report series considers technology use in museum settings. The report identifies and describes six emerging technologies that will likely have a significant impact on museum education and interpretation in the next one to five years.” As with the earlier Horizons report, it’s so full of information and ideas that have done three posts, with this first one discussing the four key trends they have identified.
A walk around the Field of Mars Environment Education Centre with Steve Papp and Pat Spiers last week revealed a plethora of native flowers of many colours and shapes, including pea flowers - all perfect for a field study of pollinators.
After the success of the Web to Classroom video conference we decided to run this event again. During that workshop teachers were shown time-saving tips for using the Museum's website via video conference.
