Galmac Computers & digital creator
Galmac Computers works with digital creator to provide the best equipment to make teaching easier
Have you ever wondered how you could create and edit your own digital videos, and then add your own sound track and effects? Are you interested in using a digital camera to take photo's in different ways and then learn techniques on how to improve them? Or have you heard about Podcasts and wondered how you might be able to create your own and share it with other people? Have you seen animations like Wallace and Gromit and thought you'd like to create something like it?
Well, now you can with Digital Creator, a brand new, fun and exciting way to learn how to use a wide range of digital media.
Digital media is evident in almost every aspect of our daily lives. We carry music, photos, videos on our mobile phones and portable music players. Digital Cre8or is a creative and interactive way to learn about the techniques and technologies involved in manipulating and making the most of these kinds of devices and of our computers. It encourages learners to create real life digital media projects that build into an innovative digital assessment e-portfolio.
Digital Creator is taught in simple, easy to follow steps at our Approved Accredited Centres.
Once you have registered with your preferred centre they will organise student log in for you to the Digital Cre8or main website. Your centre will support you and help you develop the skills, through the classroom environment. Once you have been set up you can log on to the site anytime – and you don't have to use the same computer. You will save all your creations, as you progress, so when you log on you can access them anytime. Digital Creator is made up of 8 different units and you can choose to do either all 8 units or just 4.
Digital Creator within Schools and Adult Education.
The pilot for Digital Creator has taken place in schools in different areas across Ireland, and has proven to be hugely popular with pupils and teachers alike.
All teachers/trainers will know that some pupils do not engage with traditional learning methods as well as others, and that these pupils often find it difficult to achieve good grades and express themselves appropriately. Imagine how much more they could get from their education if, instead of answering questions from workbooks, they could learn to create a podcast simulating a world war one radio broadcast in history lessons, or a digital video about climate change in geography.
This radical and relevant qualification can help inspire a new zest for learning in these students by building academic confidence and helping them to engage with their education and express themselves creatively.
Presented in manageable units, Digital Cre8or supports learners as they acquire detailed knowledge in bite-sized chunks, through enjoyable, creative activities and projects built into each unit. Digital Cre8or also helps the learner to develop skills such as, planning, problem-solving, collaboration and literacy. Registered candidates are provided with access to comprehensive courseware that includes illustrated texts, software, and sample media. Each unit also explains issues of copyright, intellectual property and health and safety considerations.
