  • zo ziet het model van een kennisecologie eruit. Nogal druk en verwarrend wellicht, maar daardoor veeleer een representatie van de realiteit dan veel vereenvoudigde modellen. Er ontstaat een constellatie van media, momenten, mensen, merken, motivatie etc. etc. Die verandert voortdurend, net als de sterrenhemel. Alle onderdelen beïnvloeden elkaar, de samenhang is niet statisch. Kunnen wetenschappelijke organisaties omgaan met zo’n dynamisch model? Lijkt me wel.\n

  • crossmedia / transmedialess = more
  • crossmedia / transmedia museum { } print...less = more
  • crossmedia / transmedia museum { } print... broadcast<less = more
  • crossmedia / transmedia museum { }mobile “ ” print... web:: broadcast< less = more
  • crossmedia / transmedia museum { }mobile “ ” print... core text web:: broadcast< less = more
  • different texts: stories, labels,descriptions and the interface. They should befully integrated and all coming from one coretext- mobile apps (foursquare, facebook, routes, fotopedia heritage, anne’s amsterdam, streetmuseum, etc.)- weblog / tumblr, facebook (page), twitter- multimedia (games, video, multitouch)- storytelling...Different purposes: different media
  • - making a ‘story’ with different episodes, disseminated on several media & devices (= crossmedia).- Using the specific characteristics and qualities of each medium and care for possibilities to switch- involving your audience the crossmedia approach
  • crosssmedia:- conversations- meeting places (agora)- interaction
  • - medium specificity: use of medium / channel according to the specific qualities and possibilities- Internet (Web 2.0, social media) often forms the connecting factor, but mobile is on its way to take over- storytelling is a means to share messages and to involve users in the story- ‘Your’ message may deviate from the planned route, partly as a result of co-creation / Conversation / participation- The story requires a non-linear approach, follows several directions, parallel, intersecting and asynchronous- crossmedia will enhance: reach, relevance, conversation, experience, involvementcharacteristics of crossmedia
  • transmedia*- parallel and intersecting routes- Transfer and moments of choice- 24/7 integration daily life- Participation / involvement * see a.o. Henry Jenkins, Christy Dena
