The digital and the real 

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talk


Gamification is a concept that has been used increasingly to present and disseminate information, and to educate the generations of today. Schools, museums and companies are borrowing methodologies and technology from the gaming industry to engage their audiences.

This think tank will examine how these new methods can facilitate the interpretation and dissemination of heritage content for the public, for young people and for tourists. Presentations will include discussions around the benefits of using new technologies in the heritage sector, and heritage as a subject for gaming. There will be demonstrations of virtual reality (VR) and the augmented reality applications (AR) as well as hands-on workshops where participants will be given the opportunity to test some of the technology. We aim to conclude the day with discussions around future policy and how the heritage sector and the gaming industry can work together in an innovative way.
