Group Creative Director, Digital
Dan gets to spend lots of time doing fun things like making games, forming playful communities, and messing around in the murky bits between storytelling and interactivity. He is especially passionate about inspiring kids to be content creators with projects such as ‘BBC’s Make It: Technobabble’, ‘Shaun’s Game Academy’ and the ‘Tate Movie Project’.
He’s particularly interested in creative programming and the future of human/computer interaction and its effect on society. He likes philosophy, and if he wasn’t so busy would love to work out the meaning of life.
Too Cool for School
Can entertainment content ever be as effective as resources specifically designed for the classroom? We go back to the classroom to discover how the TV shows, games and books we create to entertain are being used to teach children in surprising and inspiring ways. We discuss the benefits of using pure entertainment vs educational resources and explore how we can use this knowledge to enlighten future content development.
