Dustin Growick, our Director of Dinosaur Studies here at Museum Hack, will be taking the stage as a panelist for an upcoming discussion about “State-of-Art & Technology“ hosted by ArtsEdTechNYC, October 9th 2014. Dustin is a Science Instructor, who has spent the better part of the last decade sharing his enthusiasm for science with the world.
With his expert museum background knowledge, Dustin will be talking about how Museum Hack uses technology to engage new audiences. His use of social media blends education and entertainment in an trendsetting and accessible way. The panel will include a handful of innovators from the museum, gallery, arts education and technology fields, including Jen Oleniczak, from The Engaging Educator.
“ArtsEdTechNYC is a group for artists, educators, arts & culture organizations, technology enthusiasts, entrepreneurs and anyone interested in the intersection of the arts with education and technology.”
Technology is changing the landscape of how we interact with one another. This is not just limited to inter-social relationships, but commerce, politics, and even museums. Up-and-coming and constantly-evolving tech resources help museums stay relevant, and increase their outreach.
The use of mobile devices has more than doubled between 2011 and 2014. Audiences are blending technology and cultural experiences, in new and exciting ways. When it comes to reaching out and communicating, social media ranks number one with Millennials, and number three for all audiences. The conversation about the relationship between technology and museums is an important one.
“I see tremendous opportunities to bring entirely new and engaging museum experiences to an institution that is often underutilized as a dynamic tool for both teaching and engendering love and excitement for scientific discovery.”
