Rethinking the Museum for the digital age | MuseumNext - Europe's big conference on social media and digital media for the museums

Rethinking the Museum for the digital age | MuseumNext - Europe's big conference on social media and digital media for the museums | Digital Museums | Scoop.it

The following presentation was made by MuseumNext founder Jim Richardson at the Gulf Arts and Cultural Leaders meeting in Qatar in November 2011.

Conclusions

1. Technology: The scenarios that I’ve spoken about today aren’t science fiction. This technology is all very real and museums are making use of it, but nobody is yet using it to it’s full potential.

2. Expectations: People have access to incredible technology in their homes and I believe that this is changing their expectations of the world around them. If museums don’t do digital, then they risk seeming irrelevant in a digital world.

3. Participation: I believe that offering museum visitors participatory experiences is offering them better experiences. We should want our visitors the opportunity to step beyond passive visits and create new ways to encourage them to think about our collections and their individual place in the world.

4. Personalisation: We need to recognise that different people want different experiences from the museum, and create personalised experiences to appeal to the different motivations.

5. Future: By creating a more participatory culture in our museums, we can learn from our audiences. Giving us the knowledge to stay relevant in a constantly changing world."

The Future of Museums | HASTAC

The Future of Museums | HASTAC | Digital Museums | Scoop.it

"Digital advances offer museums a critical chance to become more participatory, approachable, and relatable to the public. As museums adapt to embrace the digital world, how can we ensure that technology enhances and deepens visitor dialogue rather than acting as a superficial fix for museum marketing issues?"
