Interaction Beyond the Touchscreen

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Recognizing our new normal under COVID-19 restrictions it is important to consider visitor engagement with onsite digital experiences. In some regions, government restrictions have mandated that all touchscreen interactives remain off when museums re-open. In other regions visitors have been variably reluctant or willing to interact with touchscreens. Public sentiment and policy is evolving in real time and is difficult to generalize so what are museums to do?

Is this an opportunity for museums to rethink the digital experience in-gallery? Is this a rebirth of BYOD experiences or a chance for something completely different? Are fringe benefits accrued by rethinking digital engagement?

Panelists from the USA, Canada, UK and Australia will discuss steps taken at their museums to meet these challenges and will also share visitor responses to these new forms of interaction.
