For whom the museum? „Digital natives” and „digital immigrants” in multimedia space of the museum
Abstract: The aim of the article is to show the multimedia spaces of the museum, which become more and more popular ways to present the past. This new trend in museum science has two reasons. First is the development of new media. Second is the change among the museum visitors, who want to gain a lot of attractions in one place and in a short time. Museum has to adjust to the market needs and also compete with quasi-museums. That is why they propose multimedia exhibitions, which engage senses and provide not only knowledge, but also entertainment. The article also presents two types of museum visitors, called by M. Prensky ”digital natives” and ”digital immigrants”. First type treats new technologies as necessary part of everyday life. Second type is often offish to the newest technology achievments.
