This is an ever-evolving document.

This page will constitute a repository of the information available in different museums, around the artifacts (from both staff and visitor perspective).

The goal consists on gathering data from specific cases to build a more abroad and general vision of the needs for tagging artifacts in different museums.

MMI

This document Social Groups and Activities in .pdf explores the social groups and activities within the museum space. It is meant to be a starting point for future discussion on the social groups and activities associated with the MMI micro-engagement.

Favorite quote from brainstorming notes "The social goal is the most important, this is informal learning, people don't go to museums by themselves, it is mostly a social activity and this recording (technology) can expand this activity."
