Future possibilities: Future market perspectives when the innovation will be fully available or in use
Linternauta offer a perspective on the future for interpreting and socializing magic lantern slides in the current context of educational communities. This objective would build on the following hypotheses and assumptions:
a) The content of magic lantern slides had a highly important historical role in the socialization of scientific culture in educational communities between 1845 and 1936.
b) To socialize magic lantern slides in the current context of the educational communities, it is necessary to combine heritage focused education and citizen participation.
To achieve the first objective, I would design an empirical and descriptive content analysis study that would address the construction and reception of the concept of ‘scientific culture’ in the educational system (1845-1936) via the visual content provided in classrooms through the use of magic lanterns.
To pursue the second objective, I would implement a collaborative digital platform to facilitate and promote the joint work of researchers, teachers, students or any other member of the educational community currently involved in the socialization of cultural heritage linked to magic lantern iconography repertoires.
