Mitton Manor Primary School has been on a journey over the last two years. The vision was to create a learning atmosphere where children were excited to come into school, engaged in their learning through excellent teaching within interesting themes and where ‘Team Mitton’ could develop together to create a school where excellence is the norm.
As a ‘Talk for Writing’ school that has worked alongside Pie Corbett for the last two years, we now want to develop our ICT provision to support this in class, along with our exciting curriculum.
Everyone has been excited about the prospect of working with Tim and Sarah, to develop our own subject knowledge, confidence with using ICT in the classroom and our bank of ideas.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the launch of Myst, one of the best-selling computer games in history. “Amazingly immersive worlds where the point is to understand your environment rather than test your reflexes”.
The creators of the legendary adventure game, are seeking cash for a new game via Kickstarter.
Rand Miller, and Cyan Worlds, have a proven history of delivering visually stunning environments that immerse players in the games. Obduction will be built using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 4. Epic Citadel was an early glimpse in to the possibilities of one Unreal Engine.
Cyan is looking for $1.1m (£679,000) from the crowdfunding site to develop a game called Obduction.
Ob`duc´tion, n.1. The act of drawing or laying over, as a covering.
On its Kickstarter page, Cyan said Obduction would continue with the amazing traditions of the Myst games, but with updates to take advantage of the power of modern computers.
If Cyan reaches its funding target it plans to release PC and Mac versions of Obduction in mid-2015.
Fingers crossed then, and pockets patted. There are just 28 days until the Kickstarter time is up…
Having been blessed to spend some time with the Cyan Team, in Spokane, and to experience the passion that Rand has for creating stunning, immersive worlds, and then to live so much of our lives entwined with these incredible landscapes, we wish them all the best making Obduction (un)REAL.

Today we had the privilege to work with 45 teachers at the extremely well-equipped, and organised, ‘Inspire2Learn‘, a unique resource for all schools and Academies across Redcar and Cleveland. The centre is managed by schools for the benefit of all learners and teaching staff with resources available for all.
Thank you to Carl Faulkner, head teacher of Normanby Primary, for inviting us back to this remarkable venue and joining us on some wondrous explorations, of digital and analog domains. Continue Reading
MyLinkCloud is a free bookmarking tool, which allows you to combine links on so-called “clouds”. Rather than using text, your links are embedded as logos or pictures of choice. These logos can freely be re-sized and located within your cloud. Access your links from any web-enabled device.
It’s ad-free, FREE of charge & fun to use, so how about setting up pages for a class to visit as part of a research topic?
A return trip to Normanby Primary School, in Middlesbrough, for more investigating of fascination, and learning.
Our last trip saw us experimenting with digital, and analog, ways of creating experiences. We went on a virtual rollercoaster alongside some of the brave mums and dads; we made fire pits and cooked food; we did lots that deserved a ripple. Continue Reading
