TECHNOLOGY TRENDS - Sold Out!
Learn from experts from Encyclopedia Virginia - a project of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities - and the Virginia Historical Society about advances in distance learning, 3D scanning and printing, plus Google's 360 degree interior photography project that has already brought numerous historical sites in Virginia to an expanded world audience. We'll put new tech tools to work for us as we break down the barriers of understanding distance learning and what's in store in 'tech trends' for museums in the coming years.This last workshop of the 2014-2015 Season will also provide registrants the unique opportunity to be one of the first to see the Virginia Historical Society's new digital learning technology center.
Matthew Gibson and Peter Hedlund from Encyclopedia Virginia - a project of the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities - will be highlighting some of the technology that they are employing to add value to their project. This part of the presentation is intended to be hands-on and interactive. Participants are encouraged to bring a smartphone or tablet in order to learn how to create their own Photospheres.
Subjects will include:
