„Experiences and challenges with digital projects at State Museum Schwerin”
Birgit Baumgart, educator at State Museum Schwerin (a branch of State Palaces, Gardens and Art Collections Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany) presented a selection of digitally enhanced projects in the exhibitions. In her presentation, she speaks about the addressing specific target groups by multimedia guides with simple language or sign language. Furthermore, she shows examples of projects with and for pupils, by involving them in telling their own stories or by using multimedia to facilitate their learning and understanding e.g. of architecture. Challenges adressed are for example the importance of engaging all museum staff in the educational programme and its innovations as well as how to wisely use multimedia guides to enhance the visit digitally without distracting from the displayed real objects. The presentation is followed by a Q & A session.
