Published paper: A different kind of experience: Using a smart mobile guide for education and aging research at the Hecht museum

We present how a museum visitors’ guide has been: 1) integrated into museum educational activities, 2) integrated into higher education, and 3) used to trigger aging and rehabilitation research in situ. The work presented demonstrates the potential of successful collaboration between researchers and museum staff in exploring new ideas for using novel mobile technology in a realistic setting.
