Development of Multimedia and Interactive Guide Used in Museums: Learning Art through Constructive Appreciation and Criticism

Project: Research project

Project Details


This project aims to develop a multimedia and interactive guide that can be used in museums for the learning of visual arts through art appreciation and criticism. A group of six HKIEd participants will conduct in-depth studies of ten selected works of the Hong Kong Museum of Art. Participants’ knowledge of these art works will then be organized and transformed to make relevant audio, visual, and textual materials in the form of a portable individual interactive guide. These guides will be made available for secondary school students visiting the museum. Constructive learning and contextual art appreciation will be the guiding principles in the development of the guide. The value of the project lies in its capacity to enhance visual arts learning of all project participants, including HKIEd and secondary school students. School teachers will also benefit from the project in terms of better integration of studio art teaching with appreciation and criticism using mobile technology.
