An inspired use of technology is making art accessible to the texting generation. Digital Gallery Interactive Teaching (DiGIT), enables students to use handheld computers for individual learning programmes.
They preview the Gallery’s paintings on an electronic tour at school, then follow a learning programme while at the Gallery, directing the tour themselves through their responses and choices. Back at school, the Gallery session is reviewed and related to further work and final portfolios. The wireless handhelds allow pupils to stay with the pictures as they work, rather then having to remove themselves to a separate IT suite, where the magical link between painter and viewer is broken.
