Mobile technologies in public places Austin, Terry

Abstract

Thesis: How are parks, museums, and other public institutions integrating new mobile technologies in order to promote the use of these areas and enhance user experience? Recommendations: 1. QR codes should be integrated into existing signage in Lynn Canyon Park to enhance visitor experience. 2. QR codes be used to enhance the scavenger hunt experience Conclusions: Two key questions should be asked before implementing new technologies into our parks: • Do these devices take away from the experience by pulling people out of content with the environment around them? • Are they more a distraction than an aid?
