How can digital tools and new learning devices improve the experience in museums,, memorials, heritage and landscapes? How can they encourage learning, curiosity and help us gain a better understanding of both past, present and future? How do we succeed in implementing this technology, and in doing so, what new challenges do we face?
With these questions in mind, the Falstad centre invites you to partake in this seminar about the use of digital tools in museums, memorials, heritage and landscapes. Participants will encounter digital educational tools and learn about new technology, as well as an opportunity to discuss the benefits and challenges which we face in applying digital learning to our institutions.
During the seminar, the new digital reconstruction of Falstad’s historical landscape – the Falstad prison camp of 1945, will be shown for the first time.
The seminar targets staff and educators in museums and memorials, tourism destinations and developers of experienced based technology.
The seminar will be held in English.
