“THE EXPERIENCE IN VIRTUAL MUSEUMS AS A LEARNING FACILITATOR”
Felipe César Londoño / D.A Restrepo-Quevedo / Raquel Caerols Mateo (Colombia) Mesa C – Conectografías
This document gathers an analysis of the results of the review of more than 30 virtual experiences in museums mediated by technology. For its preparation, the team used diagnostic tools for experience design, such as User Personas and User Journey Maps.
In this case, we chose, above all, museum experiences in which the researchers found potential for transformation and use of their contents at the implementation level. Throughout the experience it was possible to recognize how the different points of view of the different users allow understanding the educational potential that technological support can have when visiting a museum mediated by technology.
Additionally, depending on the semiotic resources implemented in the virtual visit, a meaning is constructed hand in hand with what is experienced, since emotionality plays a determining role in the learning process. In this way, it is possible to develop a classification in which virtual museums can estimate their learning potential, according to their content, the expected user profiles and the multimodal resources used in the development of the activities of the visit.
We can see through this review of experiences that virtual museums have a high potential in the construction of meanings, with knowledge since they decontextualize the classroom and place the student in an environment where experimentation and knowledge can be used in the development of training activities.
