“Information overload” is simultaneously one of life’s greatest challenges and solutions. Visitors often arrive at our gardens ready for a respite. Yet for so many, including young families, phones and tablets are essential companions to navigate the world, seek answers, or capture and share experiences. This session explores striking that balance through eight interpretive examples designed to meet institutional objectives and visitor needs by matching goals with the appropriate interpretive medium. Successes and lessons learned from a range of projects – high-tech to low-tech to no-tech – will be discussed.
