The Joy of Interwebz: Part 6

‘I Hear & I Forget. I See & I Remember. I Do & I Understand’: Report On 2013 ‘Paul Reynolds Scholarship’ Placement At The Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum by Virginia Gow in the The New Zealand Library And Information Management Journal Vol. 53, No.3 (2014).

This is a brilliant article. The things that resonate most with me relate to making the most of digital content :

  • Unlocking collections through real-world experiences or universal topics and emotions (death, laughter, joy) will cut across all ages – then tailor content choices if you need to.
  • Words are everywhere. Unfolding narratives aren’t. Less at first can be more – and visual storytelling is accessible to many.
  • Make people aware you’ve made something digital for them to use – through front of house staff, on signs, in queues. Don’t assume they’ll know about it.
