This week I ran a workshop at Filton Avenue Primary School to test the new version of Bear Abouts. I’ve been working with creative producer Sarah Warden to plan and deliver the testing workshops. Through the workshop we were both testing the new technology we have developed, and also trying to find how kids use the technology to tell stories. We made worksheets and carried out some mini interviews with the kids involved. In the process we found that the kids were filling in gaps in the stories, and creating new stories in their groups.
The next step is to work with some other artists who make stories as part of their practice, and find out how they use the technology to make stories.
