Going back to your previous questions, it’s difficult now to image the world after this health emergency, since we are facing perhaps the biggest crisis of our generation. Consequences of people’s actions will influence not just our healthcare system but also our economy, culture and politics, as well as our life styles.
Habits have therefore changed. Everybody is currently working from home and keeping in touch with the others only at a distance. Even schools and universities are continuing online. In ordinary times, not a single person would agree to direct such experiments. But in the future, attending any kind of online course or working from home will be more natural than expected.March 6, 2020 at 17:49 #11634
Hello everyone! My name is Giuseppe Occhino and I’m a PhD student at the first year in Public Health at University of Milano-Bicocca. My background as Bicocca student includes a bachelor’s degree in Statistics and Information Management and a master’s degree in Biostatistics, respectively.

Consequently, teachers should be well-trained in the subject matter to reinforce students with the essential knowledge to comprehend, interpret and assess with a critical eye any kind of information described by all forms of media.
A suggestion would be to organize during the school education many projects in partnership with media companies and local or national authorities.
New “phygital” channels appear to be gradually enclosing more dynamic executions which were once only achievable by combining various distinct channels. This concept is extended to the behaviour of customers’ media, often balancing TV, print, social, radio and much more.
Consequently, phygital consumers have high expectancies and combining together online and in-store practices in whatever way is most suitable for them, using a variety of technologies to service them with what they wish.
As you mentioned before, Amazon is an important example. Having suffused its e-commerce existence, it started obtaining relevant real estate, through the acquirement of Whole Foods Market for $ 14 billion in 2017, to generate a productive and complementary physical impact. But the opposite is also true, and equally important.
