The project aimed to provide practical and informed evidence of the implications and potential of the use of these games in school, and an informed strategy for future educational development requirements, based upon collaborative discussions between industry and the education community.

ArtisanCam

"ArtisanCam is a free interactive web site which introduces children (mainly 7-14 year old pupils) and their teachers to the world of contemporary visual art.

ArtisanCam provides an insight into the lives of contemporary artists. Using a mixture of video and interactive activities, we introduce children to the world of contemporary visual art before encouraging them to have a go themselves in fun and exciting ways.

The website is divided into the Artists Zone, which contains classroom-based activities and the Activity Zone, which is full of games and fun interactive activities, designed to encourage children to continue their learning at home.

ArtisanCam has been designed to help teachers deliver a creative curriculum and inspire young artists of the future. All of our activities support the national curriculum in specific areas at Key Stage 2 and 3." This web site also offers very detailed information for lesson plans such as targeted learning goals.

You can find an interview with the ArtisanCam originator and Content Director Keith Alexander as part of the MEDEA Showcase of ArtisanCam: http://www.medea-awards.com/artisancam.
