Bringing the Wow factor into the Classroom

Over the last twelve years that I have been involved with multimedia and visualisation for education and science communication there has been a dramatic change in the technology available to, and embraced by, school age students. Mobile phones are probably the most obvious, and the rapid rise of texting and instant messaging has been predominately driven by this group. Digital still and movie cameras with easy to use editing software, digital music creation and most recently pod casting, have blurred the boundaries between being a consumer of digital media and a creator of it. The Digital Learning Foundation was founded to help educators and students take advantage of the opportunities offered by these digital tools and our FilmSchool project is an example of this.
