Awano, Yumi
Journal of Museum Education, v32 n1 p17-25 Spr 2007
Many Japanese museums and other cultural institutions have been exploring ways to enrich visitors' experiences using new digital devices. This paper briefly describes some examples in Japan, ranging from a PDA, a mobile phone, podcasting, and an audio guide speaker-equipped vest to a Quick Response (QR) code on a brochure for downloading a short video to a mobile phone. Cultural institutions in Japan continue to search for the most effective and engaging uses of modern technologies. (Contains 5 figures, 1 note and 7 online resources.)
