Mobile and Interpretation

Canadian Heritage Information Network

From April 17-20, 2013, over 500 professionals descended on Ottawa for the Annual Meeting of the National Council on Public History (#NCPH2013), which included a series of presentations on current research and trends in the field. A number of these discussions centred on new media, which plays an increasingly important role in the recording, preservation, and promotion of historical knowledge. Of recent particular interest is the ever-expanding mobile market, and conference delegates were presented with new ways of discovering history through mobile interpretation.
