The NMC Horizon Report > 2016 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 Panel of Experts manage the process of researching, discussing, and ultimately, selecting the topics featured in the NMC Horizon Report > 2016 Museum Edition. The annual report is produced by The New Media Consortium. This work is supported by the Balboa Park Online Collaborative (BPOC).

The report will be published in early 2016 and focuses on emerging technology and its applications to museum education and interpretation. This year will be the sixth year of publication for the Museum Edition. (See the NMC Horizon Report: 2015 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 Panel of Experts's progress as the discussion unfolded and to use the wiki as a resource and reference tool.
