The National Film and Sound Archive is a physical place with a digital space for audiovisual material. Our purpose is to collect, preserve and share Australia’s past and present audiovisual production. In doing so we have become the custodians of more than 3 million items and a diverse range of old and new technologies. In our education programs, we harness the power of retro technology to educate, excite and inspire the next generation of creators. This presentation will explore the strategies we use to encourage student familiarity, competency and confidence with old and new technology.
(Strategies include:

  • inviting students to discover, tinker with, and recreate old technologies.
  • discovering the progression of technology and how it has transformed our lives and society;
  • exploring the possibilities of modern and emerging technologies or storytelling and preservation.
  • inspiring students to design and create their own productions with their own devices.)
