The Digital Rocking Chair's insight:


Laura Huntimer:  "You may know Ed Rodley from Drinking About Museums, Thinking about Museums or as one of the chairs of the MCN Conference. You also may know about digital paper dolls, Mood-o-meters, and 3-d printed models at the the PEM. How does the Peabody Essex Museum so consistently produce such cool and meaningful interactive tech? I sat down with Ed Rodley and Caroline Herr of the Integrated Media department to figure it out."

And yet the Journal is experimenting with its own interpretation of the genre, having just completed a 20-week first-season run of its Startup of the Year online show — a contest that the Journal calls an “interactive crash-course in entrepreneurship.”'

Dominique Taste's curator insight, November 7, 2014 1:01 PM

Le storytelling,devient un atout des musées européens face à l'industrie du divertissement. Il leur permet de créer de l' "eduvertissement" (edutainment)en multipliant les expériences narratives sous diverses formes (audio, video, digitales, intercatives, en réalité augmentée). Le CHESS (Cultural Heritage Experiences through Socio-personnal intercations and Storytelling) propulse le storytelling au coeur des nouvelles expériences où s'immergera le visiteur du futur. L'Acropole à Athènes et la Cité de l'Espace en sont 2 exemples inspirés.
