PUBLISHED ON MEDIUM Home. Where a kid can be a kid. Growing up, a kid was a kid when climbing through plastic tubes, jumping into a lagoon of colorful balls, happily watching animatronics malfunction, eating pizza, and — of course — exchanging our hard-earned tickets for spider rings and bubble gum wristwatches. Over the years, our favorite birthday venue would transform before our very eyes, serving a newer generation and doing away with our bless-ed jungle gyms — all while adding touch screens into the mix. And, then… COVID struck. Amidst national shutdowns and closures, Chuck E. Cheese would go […]

In a world where we thrive off of live experiences, it’s a wonder that most of us are still living in stereo. Sure, we attend live events. We might even know the soft spot at the movie theatre. But, on a daily basis, we are literally just getting by on “right, left, center” technologies, and so far — no one has done anything about it! Today, we watch movies in surround sound. We play games using our headsets. We live the virtual experience, but our audio keeps us grounded. The good news is… that’s all about to change — and, […]

PUBLISHED ON MEDIUM If you grew up watching Nick Jr., you already know how much of an impact interactive television shows, such as Blue’s Clues, can have on a young mind. Our children feel as if the characters on the show are actually their friends, and they quickly embrace the second-person experience, as a means for early-learning education. They become like sponges — easily engaged and encouraged by conversation. Intrigued by curiosity, they thirst for exploration. And while they quickly absorb the material and storylines presented before them, there is a huge divide between reality and storytelling that continues to […]

Previously Published to TalentZoo’s Digital Pivot Of course, Google created an app for teachers. Who would have “thunk” it? Of all the great things Google has given us to explore, many of us were unaware that Google even had a mobile app for educators, allowing them to “create and organize assignments quickly, provide feedback efficiently and easily communicate with their classes,” as Google so seamlessly puts it. For some of us, Google Classroom has been invisible, although it was actually launched last year. Teachers use Google Classrooms to host live discussions and classroom sessions. Classroom calendars remind students of important […]

PREVIOUSLY POSTED TO THE EXAMINER With traditional media being replaced by digital streams, major agencies are starting to wonder if their advertising dollars are being put to good use. At a time where we pre-record our shows, only to fast forward through the commercials – or when we wait for them to show on-demand – we prefer short 15-20 second videos overdrawn out commercials that we can’t click to skip after so many seconds. Because digital television allows agencies to redirect new customers to a call of action, digital television should be an obvious priority within advertising efforts. We are […]
