‘Show and Tell’ Workshops

From time to time we run half-day regional workshops, normally in collaboration with a customer and a professional heritage interpreter.

The objective is to use real case studies to present, in a simple non-technical way, how you can take advantage of the many possibilities that the ubiquity of smartphones provides - from visitor information and interpretation, to accessibility and donations.

We walk through some of the approaches and talk about the benefits and pitfalls of each - including hot topics such as interactive apps, augmented reality and beacons. 

The workshops usually convene around 09:30 and run through to lunch, followed by optional networking and a visit. There is a modest fee to cover the venue and lunch. If you are interested to be invited to a workshop near you, please let us know using the ‘Let’s talk’ button.

Book on digital interpretation

'Interpretation In A Digital Age' explains in plain language the use of mobile digital technology in the context of heritage interpretation. While highlighting the many exciting ideas and opportunities, it avoids the hype and unrealistic expectations that surround new technology, and points out the dangers and pitfalls that practitioners will need to deal with. The book looks at the whole range of available and emerging mobile digital technologies that are relevant to providing today’s heritage visitor experience. It dissects them from a management viewpoint, looking at factors such as cost, risk, and future trends. It is written in simple non-technical language by the two experienced technologists who created the 'Info-Point' visitor information system as a substitute delivery method for heritage sites without internet access, and who have since worked with industry professionals and major heritage organisations to support their needs for reliable digital delivery. The book will not tell you what to do. Its aim is to share the authors' information, knowledge, and experience, in order to give you a solid foundation of understanding so that you can make your own decisions with confidence.
