In an era when technology pervades education, from the formative years onwards, educating students to prepare them for careers in Arts and Technology has become more challenging, rather than less. Focusing on creativity and content creation can be overshadowed by learning technology. Careers ranging from advertising, public relations, health and corporate communications, and of course broadcast and feature film production, all require extensive creativity, balanced with an up-to-date knowledge of the latest technology and industry trends.
