Hi, just to let everyone know I'm still cracking on with the disseraton. Most of the research and main body is how technologies and creativity influence learning through education such as: teaching structures, how the likes of art attack has influenced teaching units and how toys can be utilized to help promote creativity through the imagination, active playing and story telling. Currently at the moment I'm looking into the communication within education and how that can benefit kids and the first area is pen and paper games and how that can be used as a  learning tool.

Any way just a quick update what I've been looking at and still lots more to come.

Bits and bobs

After taking in the dissertation brief and tutorial session, I have decided to have a think about a short introduction and overview to give me a basic idea of what I intend to do.
I have recently started my topic creativity and starting to look at a few books, films and websites to help me strengthen my research. I have just started right a small paragraph on how creativity can be applied.
I have also had few very brief chats with  a primary school, high school and university lectures on what methods and skills they look for within students and also what exercise they do to make it fun while learning. I have managed to grab hold of a pre school to primary creative curriculum   for the new year of 2012 - 2013 which shows me what types of creative developments they are looking for to enhance their learning.

overall i think im heading down the right track its just backing up with quotes, comments and how they measure in a debate and how they affect my work and what can be taken from the discussions to make my pixel me product better

After a quality day at Joshes house. I have decided the direction i want to go with my dissertation. after the crit and feedback from Josh and other peers I feel that creativity within education and learning environments is my strongest point and hope to discuss the importance and relevance or creative and imagination via games and activities and how this can be used to help both students and teachers and hopefully by the end this will help me develop Pixel Me further. these are the following chapters.
