Interactive Interface Accessible Circuit

VISIT THE ACCESSIBLE CIRCUIT

The Interactive Interface Accessible Circuit consists of a permanent exhibit at the Mines and Metal Museum – MM Gerdau, within the principles of Universal Design (total accessibility), aimed at the physically impaired public. From this point you can check some of the exhibit’s collections and resources, as well as the visitor’s guide, containing information about the Wise Stones Circuit. All are welcome!

WISE STONES PROJECT

The Wise Stones Circuit is the result of an international research agreement involving the Federal University of Minas Gerais – UFMG (LavMUSEU Virtual Laboratory), the Mines and Metal Museum (MM Gerdau) and the Polytechnic Institute of Bragança (IPB – Portugal), in an effort to carry out the IT (Information Technology) Project for High-Complexity Museums. While still in the prototype stage, it had also the participation of professors from the Aveiro University (Portugal). The Interactive Interface Accessible Circuit originated from that research work, having received, in 2016, an award from the Ibermuseums Program.

About the Circuit

Prototype

This initial stage allows the museum to identify pieces in its collection that can be used in accessible exhibits, as well as to test resources and assistive technologies that can be useful in the improvement of the communication with its various visitors.

Pilot

With the knowledge previously obtained from visitors’ evaluations, this stage has the purpose of producing pilot resources for experiments and prospection, in order to properly construct definitive solutions for the exhibits.

Consolidation

Consolidation of an accessible circuit, integrated to the museum’s permanent exhibit, considering the tests performed with the interactive displays during the prototype and pilot stages, as well as post-use evaluations and results obtained from temporary activities.
