Yes indeed we are proud to present the first two issues of our CELL Cahiers series. Both are the result of the research we did the passing two years since we started the crossmedialab. Speaking of first results!
The first cahier ‘Digital Cabinets of Curiosity’ examines the way in which museums and archives struggle with, and embrace, new media (internet, mobiles) in their effort to present their (digital) collections to a broad audience. We argue that a crossmedia approach is essential in tackling this. Special topics include social tagging and audience research. Reviews of more than ten professionals are included in the publication.
The second (Media Literacy. The tools are here! Where is the media literacy?) addresses the abundance of media tools available to all of us in relation to the question of media literacy. One would expect that the widely available tools make us instant-smart and natural professionals in our use of media. Especially young people are gifted, allegedly. Special topics include the ‘Net’ generation, and tools in education. The publication also contains several interviews with professionals.
