The NMC Horizon Report > 2012 Museum Edition, is a co-production with the Marcus Institute for Digital Education in the Arts (MIDEA), and examines emerging technologies for their potential impact on and use in education and interpretation within the museum environment. The international composition of the advisory board that chose the technologies, trends, and challenges reflects the care with which a global perspective for the report was assembled. While there are many local factors affecting the adoption and use of emerging technologies in museums, there are also issues that transcend regional boundaries and questions we all face. It was with this in mind that the report was created. View the work of the advisory board on the official museum wiki at
