Abstract

We report on our experiences implementing and testing Rememberer, a tool for recording visits to museums. We describe field trials at the Exploratorium, an interactive science museum in San Francisco. This challenging environment enabled us to verify that Rememberer interferes little with the social, hands-on nature of Exploratorium visits and has promise as a vehicle for post-visit reflection and communication.
