Technocation

Technocation is a documentary that attempts to make sense of technology in education. Technology in the classroom has been a moral panic in the media for a while now and no research has been done into the effects of technology in the classroom and what people think/feel about this issue. A mixture of interviews and media mashups of Youtube footage, this documentary tries to answer the question: Technology in the classroom, help or a hinder? Interviews include: Mike Fleetham who is the head of a company called Thinking Classrooms, Steve Higgins who did the original research on interactive whiteboards and new research on multi-touch surface tables in classrooms, some teachers and many students. Furthermore this documentary takes a look at how disabled students use technology as an aid.
