Looking Around vs. Looking Down: Incorporating Mobility into Your Experience Design

Mobile Apps for Museums

I contributed a chapter to the AAM Press e-book, Mobile Apps for Museums: The AAM Guide to Planning and Strategy, edited by Nancy Proctor, head of mobile strategy and initiatives for the Smithsonian Institution. In addition to Nancy, the book’s contributing authors include Jane Burton, Allegra Burnette, Ted Forbes, Kate Haley Goldman, Ann Isaacson, Sheila McGuire, Ed Rodley, Peter Samis, Scott Sayre, Margriet Schavemaker, Koven Smith, Robert Stein and Kris Wetterlund.

Excitingly, the book is now also a freely-accessible website! MobileAppsForMuseums is a site devoted to the discussion, exploration, and knowledge-sharing about the use and development of mobile technology for museums.

Jump in and share what you have learned and what you are working on, or just share your thoughts on mobile, on museums, or any related topics. Things change fast in the world of mobile. Help us keep the information up to date and stay tuned for new chapters to be added as new topics arise!
