Educational Technology Creative Collective #edtechcc

Hello! I’m Colin Maxwell, @camaxwell on Twitter, and I’m the organiser of the Educational Technology Creative Collective. If you want to know more, and sign up, please visit the #edtechcc site.

I work as a lecturer at Carnegie College in Dunfermline, Scotland. I’m an Adobe Education Leader and I am also a frequent attendee and presenter at Teachmeets in Scotland.

I teach Creative Industries subjects, including games development, photography, animation and graphic design. I have a real interest in fostering the ‘creative habit’ and encouraging students to be constantly creating, analysing and evaluating their work. At the end of their course I expect my students to have dozens of examples of work in their portfolios, and not just the handful they need for their qualification. This will give them a  more competitive advantage in the jobs market where employers (particularly in the Creative Industries) want to see commitment and interest and passion as well as skills and qualifications.

That’s what #edtechcc is also about – encouraging educators to investigate ways of using digital media technologies in a creative way for the purpose of education. If this sounds like something you’d like to involved in, then please sign up – there’s no commitment, take as much as you like, give as much as you want.
