The book ‘Museums At Play: Games, Interaction and Learning‘ is edited by freelance strategist Katy Beale and published by MuseumsEtc. My chapter, ‘Crowdsourcing games: playing with museums’ discusses the power of crowdsourcing games and the participation economy, possible new relationships with audiences and new types of engagement with objects, and the potential for an ecosystem of museum games based around collections.
A quick post because I’m excited to see the book come together: ‘Museums Forward: social media, broadcasting and the web‘ is edited by Gregory Chamberlain and will be published in March 2011. My chapter is called ‘All change please: your museum and audiences online’.
From the blurb: “In this new ground-breaking book leading innovators from both sides of the Atlantic explore how museums can create an effective social media strategy to engage with new and existing audiences.”
