The PDA Tour: We did it; So can you

Sonja Hyde-Moyer, USA

In 2005, the Museum of Science in Boston launched its first PDA Tour to accompany its traveling exhibit Star Wars: Where Science Meets Imagination. This mini-workshop will discuss the choices that were made: from project selection to technology options, from partnerships to content development. What steps did the Museum take to make it happen? How did we identify the risks and opportunities that helped the Museum move forward with its technology strategy while future-proofing ourselves in the face of a shifting technology landscape? What lessons can be drawn from our experience?
