The NMC Horizon Report: 2012 Museum Edition Wiki

Welcome to the workspace for the New Media Consortium's Horizon.Museum Project. This space is a place where the members of the Horizon.Museum Advisory Board managed the process of researching, discussing, and ultimately, selecting the topics for the NMC Horizon Report: 2012 Museum Edition. The annual report is produced by The New Media Consortium. This work is supported by the Marcus Institute for Digital Education in the Arts (MIDEA), and a grant from the Edward and Betty Marcus Foundation.

The report was published in December 2012, and focused on emerging technology and its applications to museum education and interpretation. This year was the third year of publication for the Museum Edition. (See the NMC Horizon Report: 2011 Museum Edition).

Horizon.Museum is a project that applies the process developed for the New Media Consortium's Horizon Project with a focus on emerging technologies for museums. Members of the Museum community involved in education and interpretation were encouraged to follow the Advisory Board's progress as the discussion unfolded and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool.
