Innovativ upplevelsedesign..snarare än senaste tekniken

Alldeles nyligen startade en spännande debatt om museer och mobila teknologier, via brittiska tidningen The Guardian (1) och deras online-community för konst- & kulturarvssektorn, “Culture Professionals Network” (2).

I artikeln “Dear museums: the time is right to embrace mobile” (3) uppmanade utvecklingskonsult Matthew Petrie museisektorn att utveckla mer tjänster och förmedlingsinnehåll via bärbara tekniker:

“..so many of you museums are introducing innovative exhibits that utilise new technologies to great effect, you’re missing a trick if you don’t cater to what visitors are already carrying in their hands. In fact, half of Hollywood Costume visitors who visited the V&A website did so through a mobile device.” (4)

Petrie:s inlägg fick respons i mycket tänkvärda artikeln: “Mobile culture: innovating the audience experience, not the technology” (5), skriven av personerna bakom intiativet “Mobile Experiences : Cultural Audiences” (6):

“A while back we discovered that we held a shared frustration at some of the events and conversation around the use of mobile technology in the cultural sector. We were disappointed with the promise of mobile fixing all our problems without the evidence of what is working – or not – and why. We wanted to find out if we can move beyond creating mobile experiences that are just the same old formats repeated on newer and shinier devices.

We felt there had to be another way of thinking and talking about what mobile can really do for cultural audiences. What would this new conversation look like? What would these new experiences look like? And what would it take for us to make them? ” (7)

Och vidare,

“..there is a growing interest in harnessing existing technology and platforms to deliver innovation in the experience rather than the technology. We need conversations with funding organisations to bring about support for these new sustainable approaches.

Creating a good mobile experience that works for the audience is a key challenge. As Matthew Petrie, the author of the open letter, suggests, we can leverage existing behaviours, developing services that improve, extend or piggy-back on this activity. But we can’t assume all audiences are alike. ” (8)

“Spot on!” och full pott för en vändning av frågeställningen till att handla mer om hur vi tänker, formar, identifierar användareupplevelser på nyskapande sätt. Utan att fixera oss vid hur t ex smarta telefoner ser ut och fungerar tekniskt just för tillfället..

Jag rekommenderar förstås läsning av artiklarna i  deras helhet.
Liksom att alla med intresse även registerar sig kostnadsfritt under Guardians kulturella nätverks fräcka logga  (med reservation för hur informationen du knappar in eventuellt kommer att susa iväg, via mer säkerhetsintresserade nationer…)
