I have attached an article I recently wrote for technology In Education Magazine talking about the extensive program of digital gaming I have incorporated at NFPS. Gaming is used extensively throughout our entire curriculum including games such as Minecraft, Little Big Planet, Civilisation and Sim City along with a host of IOS games. I also speak about gaming enabling a school to move from its use of technology from being a substitution for other formats or beyond that an augmentation of other formats through to something that modifies or ultimately redefines the learning. This is where the technology become transformative.
A huge thank you for those who supported our Pozible campaign.

The multi media component that has been created (by Dotahn Caspi and Sean Kelly) by your generous donations are absolutely stunning. Everyone in Collider and those working on the production is very very appreciative of your support.
This show is a very personal statement for myself and has been in the making for almost 2 years now, I am really looking forward to be able to show it. It has also been an incredibly satisfying experience as an artist to collaborate with other highly talented hard working artists creating at the top of their fields including the members of Collider, Adam Simmons, Anita Hustas, Andrea Keeble, Jason Bunn, Sarah Curro, and Ronny Ferella, as well as the visual artists Dotahn Caspi, Emmily Caspi, Sean Kelly and my amazing wife Michelle Robinson.
