Keynote - Visual journey through the universe

The night sky has always fascinated mankind – when have you last looked at the stars? In this keynote we pay a virtual visit to the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria. Their unique Deep Space presentation room allows you to fully immerse yourself in other worlds. Together we make a colorful visual journey through our solar system, taking an opportunity to take a look at our Earth from outside. Views that we would have never seen without the support of technological aids. Keynote in English.

There are workshops for museum professionals, teachers and both. All workshops below will be given in English. For the full Dutch program click here.

AR, MR, VR in museum education
MonA is an Erasmus+ project about Museopedagogy and Augmented reality. The project partners created a guide to museum education with the use of modern technology. This elaborate guide gives teachers and museum professionals an insight in these new technologies and how to use them. In this interactive workshop we will explore the difference between VR, AR and MR, try out some good practices of museums and we discuss how to use this knowledge in thinking about future product development.

Creating VR-tours for museums

Virtual tours enable people to visit museums via the internet. For school children they can be an inspiring introduction to a museum. In the workshop we tell you about the development process, the do's and don’ts and ofcourse a look in the tour is included!

Augmenting Stories
This workshop will show an example of applying augmented reality within a traditional museum context. The example features an exhibition about the history of Reykjavik in which a traditional scale model of the city center is brought to life with the use of augmented reality. While bringing in media, it respects the intrinsic nature of the model as the star object in the space. In the workshop you will apply the design principles from this project to an object near to you. Have scissors, pens and paper ready to get creative!
