EARTH2018: Digital Environments for Education, Arts and Heritage

Share

earth2018The meanings that are defined in relation to the concept of heritage as well as the methods and tools for exploring cultural heritage have changed and expanded. In this context, information technologies offer new semantic spaces and action boundaries to experiment with different approaches to heritage education. This determines an increasingly complex intertwining of media and environments with the consequence that any artifact can be configured as a digital ecosystem. In this sense, virtual museums, multimedia installations, interactive technological platforms, as well as apps, serious games and immersive realities, are some of the possible variations of the digital environment in which to place innovative modes of education to tangible and intangible heritage. Collective and connective intelligences enter into a relationship to build new experiences with art and heritage towards an awareness of the protection of the creative expressions of civilizations.

CALL FOR PAPERS – submission deadline 12 May
