Abstract

This article reports on a survey of network and Wi-Fi enabled technologies to support disabled learners in museums and similar cultural heritage environments. Data was collected using a systematic literature review using six academic databases, which included peer-reviewed articles from a range of sources. The analysis addressed two research questions, and was developed in three phases: the first phase examined trends, definitions and methods of teaching and learning in cultural heritage; the second categorized genres that emerged in the first phase and discussed meta-levels; the third developed a critical discussion on teaching
and learning models. The study had two principal findings: 1) museums have done much to make themselves part of the inclusion agenda, 2) more needs to be done to improve management strategies, increase agency and reduce practice using deficit models.
