How do museums and other cultural organizations identify exactly how big their digital teams should be, how they should be structured, and where they should sit in the organization? And how do they define and measure digital success? We surveyed 56 GLAM organizations across the world to find out some of the answers to the questions that digital leaders are asking right now in their journey towards digital maturity.

Speaker: Dafydd James, National Museum Wales

In this century, the language of creation, communication and learning is digital. Digital technology is developing so fast that society cannot always keep up the pace. Today’s schoolchildren are younger than Google, but it’s a big mistake to think that young people are digital geniuses. What does digital literacy mean today? How does digital education meet public collections?

Speaker:  Dr Attila László Főző, Centre for Digital Education and Methodology

We live in a world that is slowly but surely turning 100 % digital. From the deserts of Africa to the plains of Europe, technology has taken its rightful place in communication, entertainment and education. In this world, we should all be part of the development to make sure that the needs are met. Unfortunately, that is not part of the progress we are seeing. Girl’s gain and loose an interest for technology at a very early age, citing lack of role models, exposure and the likes as the reasons. Media and popular culture has portrayed tech as something for greasy, male geeks way too long, and at home the men lead in the digital revolution. The results are painfully clear. Women only make up less than 25 % of all workers in ICT. Getting young women to entertain the idea of an education in ICT has proven very difficult. Getting them to stay in the jobs afterwards even more so. There’s need of a structural change, from our day to day lives through the educational system and in our overnments. To do so we must understand what has gone wrong, what’s still wrong and how to make the system change necessary. Diversity is good for all, and it is possible! Based on my years of experience as an educator and founder of the girl tech organization DigiPippi, I have pinpointed ways to foster girls’ interests from a very early age. A method that is possible for all to learn and apply. The real paradox is, that the main focus of the method is this: Stop teaching technology and start being present.

Speaker:  Eva Fog, DigiPippi
