dc.description.abstractThis paper presents the development and evaluation of a mobile app for families visiting a science museum in Thailand. The app was designed to help adults in family groups to support children’s learning during the visit while learning about new science concepts and ideas themselves. The design of the app was based on a family learning needs analysis study. The evaluation focused on the impacts of the app on family learning outcomes and on family engagement with exhibits. Findings suggest that the app (a) significantly increased family dwell time, (b) provided an additional platform for family interactions, and (c) amplified learning outcomes.en
