How do people learn and make sense of the world when visiting museums and Cultural Heritage sites? How do we foster meaningful and interactive museum visiting experiences? Can museum interactives and digital technologies assist us in providing both affective and effective museum, life and learning experiences? These are some of the main questions that lie at the heart of what has been motivating me to work with museums and their visitors for more than ten years in Greece, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands and the UK.
Feeling delighted that my first real-life, real-time and on-site participation in Museums and the Webs coincides with the 20th anniversary, I am looking forward to meeting you all there!
