Like many contemporary educators, I am constantly looking beyond the walls of the school to provide ‘real world’ opportunities for students to attain 21st century skills.

While gazing at samples of student work on the walls of the Media Centre at CDNIS, I knew that the bar needed to be raised further. With such talented students and state-of-the-art technology, I felt it was important to get students out into the community researching technological issues they were passionate about and sharing them in a slick format using Adobe’s Creative Suite.

I was amazed by what students shared with with in their reflections on this project and are in awe at the quality of work that young people can create given the right blend of time, tools, guidance and resources.
