What is Digital Creation? The use of digital tools to conceptualize, create and publish all kinds of work, including blogs photographs, games, videos, animations and music.
Why is Digital Creation important? Digital technology has completely transformed almost every industry and sector of business, education, health, transport, design and so on, and this transformation is gathering pace.
Almost certainly, any student working in a creative or high-order thinking job of the future will be using digital tools. Moreover, digital creativity is fun! 20 years ago it was impossible to imagine a world where anybody could make a film, an album, an exhibition of art, or a book, without a large financial investment. Now, once someone has learnt to operate the tools, the only limits depend on passion, creativity and determination.
As well as learning ‘hard skills’ such as how to use certain software, the students will gain intense exposure to essential Project Based Learning skills such as Creativity, Critical Thinking and Collaboration/Team-working.
The course will be a selection of about 5 projects, touching on different areas of potential for digital creativity.
