How Tech Is Changing the Museum Experience
Museums are exploring digital and mobile technologies to enhance visitor experience. Initiatives go beyond technology within exhibits and installations, but also include more pervasive uses of tech to create interactive experiences for visitors throughout a museum, as well as remote experiences for those who cannot get there.<br />
Here, we highlight what three museums are doing to make the experience interactive, educational and engaging.

Rebooting Museums (5) | HiLobrow
In Season 1, Episode 12 (“The Hand of God”) of Battlestar Galactica, the remaining ships of the Colonial Fleet are in dire straits; their fuel resources are dangerously low. Commander Adama decides to make an uncharacteristic move by risking an attack on a Cylon tylium (fuel) refinery. Why take this risk? He declares, in a conversation with President Roslin, “Sometimes we just need to roll the hard six.” However, he chooses to do so while isolating the majority of the fleet — he restricts who he puts into harm’s way. Adama’s argument is that sometimes high risk / high reward experiments are what survival requires.

The AGO goes mobile
The AGO's recently released iPhone app (designed by Tristan Interactive) offers a great way to get a little culture when you're stuck fiddling around on your phone looking for something to do. Along with the usual information regarding upcoming exhibitions, floor plans, and visitor hours, there's two features in particular that make this a nice addition to one's app collection: 1) audio guides and 2) an impressive sample of the gallery's permanent collection.The former is of course, only really useful when you're at the gallery, but the latter is a wonderful little guilt-free time waster. Although it'd be nice to see a more extensive collection of photographs and contemporary art in general, the European and Canadian collections offer lots to look at with more than 800 pieces to browse between them (the Modern and Contemporary section, on the other hand, only features 39 pieces). ...

Research on tablets for learning : MuseumMobile Wiki
Here at the British Museum’s Samsung Digital Discovery Centre, we are about to acquire a set of Samsung Galaxy Tabs for a large scale education project. The project will involve museum visits by 700 secondary school students (age 12-13) in June/July 2011. The students will complete a two-part activity: Completing an AR/web-based game activity on the Tabs in the galleries; Making films in our digital center based on the data they collect through the game.Since we have such a large number of participants doing the same activity in a short space of time, we are keen to use this as an opportunity to gather research data on how technology facilitates learning in museums and the use of Tabs in galleries. (We are less interested in evaluating the film making activity.) It would be incredibly helpful to have input on what our research questions should be and how to structure our study.Our intial brainstorm yielded the following questions ...

Prototyping moveME – a location-aware indoor mobile App with tracking
And although there’s two companies involved with RFID in their names, this project is not about RFID at all – but instead is developing and trialling a mobile platform which, combined with indoor location awareness, is able to deliver customised content to visitors and also deliver valuable spatial analytics data back to the museum to assist with future exhibition design and spatial configuration.<br />
Julian Bickersteth and Christopher Ainsley delivered a paper, Mobile Phones & Visitor Tracking, at Museums and the Web 2011 that outlined the broad premise of the project in April.<br />

"And for me this was the important bit: involving amateurs didn’t mean letting go of standards or expertise.  While the projects were profoundly different Phil and Kevin both spoke about the need to guide their participants to deliver quality.  I was particularly struck by Phil’s description of the impact made by changing the standard heading ‘comments’ to ‘annotations’ and the way in which Kevin had created pleasurable online activities that in effect ‘trained’ participants.<br />

Museums & Mobile | Online Conference | March 22-23, 2011
quote: The first day includes interactive online workshops with museum professionals who have developed and implemented mobile experiences at their museums. Participants will learn first-hand about what worked well and what could have be done differently, and will pick up practical and actionable guidelines for the development and operation of their own effective mobile experience. The day will be shaped around case study presentations exploring the four themes of: project planning & strategy, the design of effective on-site experiences, the design of engaging off-site experiences, and appropriate technology solutions.<br />
<br />
Remember, all live sessions will be recorded and made available online for conference delegates shortly after they take place so that delegates can enjoy the program, regardless of availability or time zone!

Richard McCoy — Beta testers wanted for New Public Art Documenter Mobile App
Will you try this mobile app if just once?  It’s called “EpiCollect,” and it’s for data collection; EpiCollect was designed for people to create their own projects to collect data on whatever they’re interested in.  The app works on both Android and iPhone platforms.  I don’t have a link to the app, you have search for it in the Android Marketplace or on iTunes.<br />
<br />
With EpiCollect I’ve created a project that allows anyone in the world to document public art, and then share it on the project web page.  This project is called “PublicArtDocumenter,” and it’s an outgrowth of our efforts with WikiProject Public Art. There are just a few entries so far, but you can check em out here:

IPhone and Android Apps Breach Privacy - WSJ.com
Few devices know more personal details about people than the smartphones in their pockets: phone numbers, current location, often the owner's real name—even a unique ID number that can never be changed or turned off.

These phones don't keep secrets. They are sharing this personal data widely and regularly, a Wall Street Journal investigation has found.

"Contemporary Art Museum Interactive Guide.

My guide is an interactive guide made for smart phones that uses the museum as an interactive playground where visitors can generate paths and connections through their activities.
With My Guide the visitor can take pictures, tag the artworks, add notes, sketch on others notes, and share the captured experience via social networks to the artists itself, museum curators and friends.
By doing so the visitors modify the museum content and influence the possible interactions between the artworks and the exhibition space itself."
