With the advent of interactive technology, and in this case hand-held devices, LHF saw the opportunity to enhance the visitor experience of our Where are the Children? Healing the Legacy of the Residential Schools exhibition and offer layers of interactive multimedia content on demand. A result LHF has developed an application (app) and mobile website that offers visitors rich multimedia content via handheld devices that interact with the exhibition photos, narrative panels, and archival documents.
Using the app, visitors can explore the Where are the Children? Healing the Legacy of the Residential Schools exhibit in greater depth by hearing commentary from curator Jeff Thomas and viewing content such as video, images, and text.
