What roles can digitally connected devices play in enhancing children's engagement at museums?

I am a PhD candidate in Digital Media into the program Portugal|UT Austin at University of Porto with M-ITI as a host institution.

I am a University of Madeira graduated holding a BSc degree in Communication, Culture and Organizations and a MSc degree in Cultural Management and I worked in Communication Management in a non-profit organization and in a museum.

I enjoyed to work with digital content and children on my Master’s Thesis and I believe that the digital and interactive content for children have still immense potential to be uncovered and further developed inside museums!
