Heritage Interpretation and Smartphones - HQS Wellington
Join us aboard the ship 'HQS Wellington' on the Thames for a practical half-day workshop on mobile digital interpretation on the morning of Tuesday 20th February 2018, including a conducted tour of the historic ship by Captain Guy Brocklebank.
The workshop objective is to present in a simple non-technical way a broad overview of the possibilities that smartphones provide in various aspects of heritage - from visitor information and interpretation, to accessibility and donations. We will talk about various approaches and the benefits and pitfalls of each - including emerging technology such as apps and beacons. The emphasis will be practical including demonstrations and presentations of case stories, including the system currently being installed at HQS Wellington.
Sponsored by Info-Point, these workshops are designed to raise your knowledge and awarenes of a broad range of mobile digital technologies. With the inclusion of a comprehensive book to take away, it is a suitable event to include in your CPD programme.
The workshop fee is £78 (inc VAT) to cover costs and includes lunch, tour, and a copy of 'Interpretation in a Digital Age', a 178-page practical guide to using digital technology in heritage.
Arrival is from 10:00 and the formal event will finish around 12:30 with a light lunch followed by the tour finishing around 14:00. There is a downloadable programme below. Spaces are limited.
