iDEA film

iDEA film

When we launched the Bronze Inspiring Digital Enterprise Award a few months ago, we asked some of the people who helped make, test and play with iDEA to create their very own 'video selfie' to put into a little introduction film. We asked them - what do you think of iDEA? How would you describe it? These are the results - you and your students will hear from people who have used iDEA to develop digital and enterprise skills; teachers and university staff who are using it in classrooms, workshops and clubs; partners who are helping make the 'badges' (the online modules) and some of the people who have helped make iDEA happen.

George The Poet film about iDEA

George The Poet film about iDEA

George the Poet has made an inspirational film for iDEA to help inspire people to learn, be curious, discover and make the most of opportunity. "We're the generation that came of age online", he says, and talking of enterprise - calls it "the arena in which iDEAs centralise". He talks about how valuable knowledge is - so teachers can play this in any lesson across the curriculum to help spark interest and passion for learning in young people. George the Poet talks about untapped potential and helps people see that by not participating or learning, they will be left out. He says "We now live in a digital age" and shows how discovery and enterprise can lead to self determination, personal growth and self-sufficiency. Note: George the Poet is a spoken word artists with an interest in social and political issues. The film lasts 3'30 minutes.
