Adding modern technology is a growing necessity to attract and retain younger and future audiences, but technology should only be implemented when its use actually enhances the exhibit experience and allows for deeper learning for visitors. In this session, we will focus on interactive kiosks (iPads, touchscreens) and explore and define which exhibits need interactive kiosks. You will learn best practices for choosing which content makes sense to bring to interactive kiosks and how to evaluate which technologies to use as well as choosing a technology partner. We will turn to the audience to hear a few of your best and worst technology implementation stories. We will conclude with best practices for evaluating success for an interactive kiosk.
