Mike is Curriculum Leader and Tutor for Carpentry and Joinery at his College where he has developed an innovative and comprehensive range of digital support and learning tools. He began this Digital Literacy project by making films to illustrate tasks clearly and make theory more interesting, however the project soon grew! Now his films are available on Youtube and are viewed by thousands around the world! Students are encouraged to make their own films to illustrate aspects of learning and the whole College is now on a creative digital learning route designed to help students learn more effectively.
