Arts digital R&D podcast 5: education and learningHide description
Dave Patten, Head of New Media, Science Museum; Max Whitby, Co-Founder and CEO of Touchpress; and Kirsten Campbell-Howes, Director of Learning, at digital agency Soda join John Wilson in the studio to debate hot topics including: whether technology can and should replace teachers and the traditional structures of learning, how BYOD (bringing your own device) could see smartphones being used to aid - rather than distract from - learning in the classroom and museum environments, and the educational benefits of games.
Plus hear about a Jodi award-wining digital project from the National Trust to make their historic properties accessible to all, online resources from the British Library that open up possibilities for lifelong learning, and follow Tate Kids down the rabbit hole as they demonstrate their Wondermind game.
