Noreen and Lucille attended a workshop at the Western Development Museum in Saskatoon on new technology available for museums. Smartboards and other touchboards were demonstrated. Applications with the Smartboard were shown by the Allan Sapp Gallery. Blogs, pod casts and other Internet methods of communicating to the world about our museums.
Some of the information was pertinent to the larger museums, so the task now is to decide how we can use some of the ideas and apply them to our museum. We are going to try some podcasts - so watch for them soon!
We also browsed their sales shop and came away with some ideas for ours. We are always on the lookout for some things that we can do in-house.
It is an exciting time for our museum. If you live in the area and would like to help us out, contact someone from the list of contacts below.
