About the Tour:
Educational technologies are not just used within educational
institutions, they are also utilised in informal learning contexts such as
Museums. This onsite tour at the Powerhouse Museum will examine
the latest technologies being used to inform and engage various
audiences from students to the wider public and will give delegates a
chance to see the most innovative technologies that can be used for
distance and in-class learning experiences.
Janson and Peter will walk you through their current projects and how
they are utilising educational technologies. The experience will also
allow delegates to wonder freely, and gain a hands-on experience of the
video conferencing and robotic technologies the Powerhouse Museum
is currently utilising.
