Abstract

CORDOVA-GONZALEZ, Julia; OSSANDON, Yanko; ALVAREZ, Nancy  and  BERNAL, Jorge. FORM CHINCHORRO COMMUNITIES TO THE PRESENT: A SCIENTIFIC AND TECHNOLOGICAL APPROACH IN MUSEUM EDUCATION. Chungará (Arica) [online]. 2002, vol.34, n.1, pp.127-140. ISSN 0717-7356.  http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0717-73562002000100008.

The interpretation of the archaeological past as presented in museum displays is based on the visitor's previous information and the supporting texts provided by the museum, since personal help tailored to the visitor's needs cannot be permanently at hand. The necessarily limited spaces for textual information, graphic solutions, as well as label contents can seldom answer individual queries within the vast spectrum of visitors and their expectations. Moreover, biophysical requirements of some museum users may not be satisfied. A strategic approach to partially overcome these limitations was undertaken through Yatiqasiña , software of museum education. This article briefly describes its propositional structure, and reports the results of a recent evaluation of the beta product on attitude, contents, and values, in a stratified sample of users in Arica chosen from the educational stratum. This paper is a partial report of an experimental study including four other cities in Chile

Keywords : Museum education; Archaeological Museum San Miguel of Azapa; Chinchorro Culture; software evaluation.
