A digital organisation is generally considered to be one that focuses on customer experience irrespective of channel and has a ‘digital culture’. But how do you get the right mix of skills, culture and technology in order to benefit the customer and the long-term health of your organisation?

children using british museum's new app in the parthenon gallery

The British Museum: five lessons in augmented reality

Since 2009, the British Museum has educated youngsters in Bloomsbury via its Samsung Digital Discovery Centre (SDDC). It’s free, and is the most extensive on-site digital learning programme of any UK museum. 

I went along to the British Museum last week to see the launch of a new image recognition and augmented reality (AR) app, A Gift for Athena, helping kids to engage with the museum’s Parthenon gallery. 

The app, built by Gamar, is simple in premise and use, but also a lot of fun, showing that augmented reality can succeed when applied in the right manner. 

In this post I’ll discuss why the app works, and what’s needed to succeed with AR.

Following a Forbes piece in which a teacher proclaims he avoids turning a computer on during class time, and that face-to-face is key I thought I’d explain why all that is wrong.

Below are five examples of technology or digital in the classroom that really make life easier for both the teacher and student.

TED launches new YouTube channel as part of education drive

The non-profit organisation TED is responsible for some of the most inspiring talks relating to technology and innovation in circulation today.

Unsurprisingly, videos of these often become viral hits within relevant communities online. But many believe TED is ignoring an important audience: youngsters.

As TED curator Chris Anderson explains, "Over the past few years...we've seen these talks spread over the Web and a recurring theme from people in the community has been, 'These are great, but could you do something more for the kids?'"

Apple wants to reinvent the textbook, but is it destined to fail?

A few hours ago Apple held its much-anticipated education event in New York City, and as expected, announced a new offering that seeks to reinvent the textbook around the iPad.

Seeking to make textbooks more interactive, more durable, more searchable and more easily refreshable, iBooks 2 offers a "new textbook experience for the iPad." And boy is it pretty.

Raising the bar: Econsultancy's graduating class of 2011 builds on last year's success

Econsultancy's qualifications team is chuffed to bits to hear the news that this year's MSc in Digital Marketing Communications graduates not only achieved their qualifications, but aced them.

Out of the five candidates, three were awarded merits, whilst Daniel Tomlinson (Trutex) and Lucy von Weber (South West Wales Tourism Partnership) achieved the MSc's first distinctions. The university described all this year's dissertations as outstanding and we're inclined to agree!

End of Year Analysis: 2009 roundup and 2010 predictions

It seems that time of year again, where suddenly end-of year roundups begin appearing and predictions are being made as to what’s going to happen across 2010,  some reasonable, some rather far-fetched.

I’ve no shame in saying that I’m going to jump on the future-gazing bandwagon, but in all fairness I’m also going to look at my previous thoughts about the direction of the digital marketing landscape to see if anything actually came true.

Wolfram Alpha - Thank You

Wolfram Alpha is disruptive revolutionary technology.  I envision the next step to be simple: a web enabled and wireless carrier supported scientific calculator.  This will hyper-drive math and science education and will open up science and discovery.

Bridging the interactive skills gap

skill gapBack in interactive marketing's beginning, a word you heard time and time again was "silo." There were silos between digital and traditional advertising and marketing at both the agency and client levels. The gulf was broad and often seemed unbridgeable. These days, there are new silos popping up all over the interactive landscape. And they're attributable to an industry skills gap.
