New Media for Museums

For the first term of my course we were asked to develop a research strategy and apply it on a research for the subject of our interest. We had to hand in a 3.000 words essay in which we analyse both our strategy as well as our findings.

The topic I chose is how the new media have been used to support/enhance the museum experience. My essay starts with the research strategy followed by the literature review while the third and largest part of the document is the actual study.

In the report there are two approaches of the subject, purpose-driven and medium-driven approach. At the purpose-driven approach there are several case studies regarding applications of new media in museums for learning purposes, while at the medium-driven approach there are a couple of cases analysed around the use of the mobile device in exhibition spaces.
