Social Mobile Museums: The Missed Opportunity
The cultural heritage sector has spent to long focussing on mobile as a way to deliver guides - our audiences aren't using their mobiles in this way though. In this presentation we explore how we can broaden our thinking about mobile as a tool and improve, not only visitor experience, but also our own organisational learning.
