VIDEO: Educational Programming at the Exhibition Van Gogh: Up Close

September 7, 2012

At the beginning of the summer we published a short promo for the Van Gogh exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada. Now, we knew we shouldn’t miss this historic Canadian showing of post-Impressionist works, but the prospect of checking out iPads and social media in museum educational programming sounded a little too rich to pass up. We gathered up colleagues and a camera, headed down to the Gallery, and put this video together for other museums who might want to replicate similar activities in their exhibition spaces.

Many thanks to the Education & Public Programs staff for having a coffee chat with us during our visit to speak on the process and successes of these activities. We expect to see a lot more tablets in museums and galleries in the coming years given their portability, durability and versatility – and extremely fast-growing popularity.

There were a number of other great uses of tablets in Canadian museums over the summer. Let us know if you’ve seen any great examples from museums or galleries that you have visited!
