“This project is a trans-­disciplinary and cross-­organizational analysis between Northwestern University in Qatar and Qatar Museum Authority into the viable and effective use of motion-­sensing technologies in museums and cultural spaces for dissemination of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH). We will explore alternative opportunities for knowledge transfer of ICH content that manifest with playfulness in order to elicit a deeper understanding of such intangible cultural artifacts with specific focus on cultural dance. The project will examine motion-­sensing technologies that extend learning experiences beyond those that remain behind the computer or television screen bringing ICH content into an intelligent kinesthetic learning environment. Initial prototypes created, as a product of this work, will capture live performances for training an artificially intelligent dance instructor and playback in the form of an interactive dance based application. It will be evaluated in a supervised museum environment where measures of technology efficacy, engagement and learning outcomes will be evaluated. ”
