Could your institution use a push into the 21st century? Do you want to stay relevant to a new generation of plugged in, media savvy visitors? Want to better connect with your audiences on all levels? With the ongoing development of mobile technologies and online platforms, museums are finding themselves with a wide variety of new tools to support their missions. These tools can enhance the museum experience for visitors inside and outside of the institution. They can provide staff with new ways to understand and reach out to their audiences and donors by creating targeted campaigns. While there is not a one size fits all approach to technology and museums, this workshop is intended to be a catalyst for attendees to consider how different devices or programs could support new and ongoing initiatives within their institutions.

Join San Diego Emerging Museum Professionals on June 30th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am in the Treetops Room at the San Diego Zoo for a professional development workshop discovering the ways that museums are using tech. We are thrilled to have guest speakers from the San Diego Zoo, the San Diego Natural History Museum, Balboa Park Online Collaborative, and Classy (a local fundraising platform for social causes). Following the presentations, attendees will work together to brainstorm new uses of technologies in the fields of visitor experience, fundraising, and mission fulfillment in a mini-workshop.
