    Panel: Urban Tech-gap: Museum and University Liaisons-A New Electronic Bridge

Abstract:


    Universities and museums have begun to take the creative means of multimedia production into their own hands. Science and industry museums now offer more serious instructional visualizations, creating hands-on components that draw visitors into active participation. The differences are diminishing between high-caliber productions in museums and open electronic toolboxes in the individual classroom. Collaboration bridges the resources of these two methodologically different environments. This panel offers a glimpse at what is happening in these two professional worlds and develops a ladder for visual literacy as a common domain.
