Mobile Technology and Learning in Museums and Galleries
One-day Seminar | London | Monday 8 June
This seminar will both present the results of a range of recent (fascinating) research studies in this field, and examine in depth how the technology is being used in practice in museums.
The day will consist of two related parts. Our morning session will introduce participants to a range of current learning options using mobile technology, and provide in-depth, research-based feedback about its
effectiveness in the learning process within museums, galleries and heritage organisations. Speakers will include: Sue Johnson, Institute of Education, University of London; Giasemi Vavoula, University of Leicester; and Kevin Walker, London KnowledgeLab.
The afternoon session will be held at the National Maritime Museum where participants will hear and see at first-hand how one cutting-edge mobile learning system (OOKL) is being successfully used; the Museum will also be sharing the results of recently commissioned research; and, finally, participants will themselves be able to use the technology in a museum context.
To facilitate interaction and learning, this will be a small group event, with a strictly-limited number of participants - early reservation is strongly recommended.
Delegate fee: £177 (early-bird rate) or £247.
DEADLINE: 7 June 2009
