Horizon Reports

Welcome to the workspace for the New Media Consortium's Horizon.Museum Project. This space is a place for the members of the Horizon.Museum Advisory Board to manage the process of selecting the topics for the NMC Horizon Report: 2011 Museum Edition. The annual report is produced by The New Media Consortium. The report focuses on emerging technology and its applications to museum education and interpretation. This year will be the second year of publication for the 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 are encouraged to follow the Advisory Board's progress as the discussion unfolds and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool.
