This week we feature an incredible image of a Warty Prowfish shooting out a cloud of presumably toxic fluid. We see Port Jackson Sharks mating and talk about cannibalistic shark embryos. The 12 new fish movies complete the current series on wrasses. Thank you as always to all contributors.
This is the third and final post about the 2010 Horizon Report: Museum Edition which considers technology use in museum settings. This post provides commentary on the technologies to watch identified in the report.
This is the second of three posts about the 2010 Horizon Report: Museum Edition which considers technology use in museum settings. This post provides commentary on the six significant challenges identified in the report.
“The Marcus Institute for Digital Education in the Arts (MIDEA), the museum-focused branch of the New Media Consortium (NMC), released the 2010 Horizon Report: Museum Edition. This specially-focused edition of the annual Horizon Report series considers technology use in museum settings. The report identifies and describes six emerging technologies that will likely have a significant impact on museum education and interpretation in the next one to five years.” As with the earlier Horizons report, it’s so full of information and ideas that have done three posts, with this first one discussing the four key trends they have identified.
It's been a massive movie week! Also featured this week are fantastic images in the Whitespotted Anglerfish gallery. The 'strangest-fish-of-the-week' award has to go to Glenoglossa wassi. This eel lacks a common name and has a tongue like a fishing rod.
In early September, Australian Museum’s beloved Freshwater Crocodile 'Stanley' left the Australian Museum after living for over two years in the Surviving Australia exhibition. Stan was replaced by three adorable new baby crocodiles that are now enjoying their new home.
