Talk (or Play): Hands on the Touch Table

Are you a non-programmer curious about producing touch table experiences?  I would be glad to facilitate or co-facilitate an introduction to creating touch table experiences that promote exploration of art and humanities content.

In this session, i would like to offer a quick look at some Harn Museum of Art touch table experiences,and then shift into group brainstorming of more effective approaches to engaging audiences in exploring art and humanities content through touch technology.  Alternatively, the session could provide an introduction to working with a particular piece of software, IntiuFace (this is a licensed product that is also available as a free trial version) with the goal of getting general insight into the process of developing touch table content.

    I’d love to know more about the touchtable in the Harn, for use in bringing classes to the Harn for folks to use the interface in their exploration and learning! I’d also love to know more about touch tables and how the Harn cretes content to learn more about the possibilities!
