Creating Museum Media for Everyone (CMME)
About This Collaboration
Through two innovative workshops, CMME brought individuals from many fields together to generate ideas for interactive learning environments that are inclusive of all visitors, including those with disabilities. Museum professionals from a variety of institutions and individuals with expertise related to formal science/special education, technology product development, gaming, accessible technologies, universal design, human computer interfaces, and people with disabilities shared their knowledge of innovative designs. CMME will culminate in a larger effort to develop exemplar exhibits and a comprehensive DIY Toolkit that will enable other museum professionals to develop inclusive digital interactives at their own institutions.
CMME is guided by a core team of four organizations (Museum of Science, WGBH National Center for Accessible Media, Ideum, and Audience Viewpoints) that are working collaboratively to design and develop an exemplar interactive. Together these organizations represent leaders from the museum field and the digital media world who have extensive experience creating exhibits and media for all audiences.
CMME Principal Investigators are Christine Reich and Andrea Durham (Museum of Science), Bradley Botkin (WGBH National Center for Interactive Media), and Jim Spadaccini (Ideum). For more information, email email@example.com.
