Aims/Description: This module will enable students to become practitioners who can facilitate digital media making using everyday tools such as phones, tablets and computers, for example, animation, games design and news production with children. A key focus in this module will be on increasing expertise in pedagogies which enable creativity in a variety of education contexts such as museums, makerspaces, libraries and schools. The module will include digital media production workshops where students will work on a series of group and individual creative projects.
