NEW MEDIA DEMANDS NEW LITERACIES
Set in the early years of the 21st century, Inanimate Alice tells the story of Alice and her imaginary digital friend Brad.
In episode one, Alice is living with her parents in a remote region of Northern China. Over the course of the remaining episodes, each a self-contained adventure, we see her develop into a talented animator and designer with the biggest games company in the world.
Through text, sound, images, music and games, the story of Alice becomes increasingly interactive and game-like, reflecting Alice’s own developing skills as a game designer and animator.

Some P7s and I going to work with Inainmate Alice with in the new year. I’ll keep you posted.
It’s a very exciting resource though I’m a bit daunted by the skills I might need to help the students create their own digital stories.
Any suggestions/support gratefully received!
That’s great Hilery, hope it goes well…
If there’s anything I can do to help, let me know!
