After the success shown by my third year group on the Vote 2011 creative project (see previous posts) before Christmas, I thought I’d give my first group the same opportunity and it gives me a chance to assess how differently they tackle creative problems at their early stage of development.
Taken from the Assembly website – here are a few hints & points of reference for my 1st year group to check out, which hopefully should inform and inspire their creative thinking.
The National Assembly for Wales has produced a series of videos designed to inspire and inform Wales’s younger generation about the choices open to them in the year of Vote 2011.
The videos cover subjects including who is eligible to vote, how to register to vote and what to expect on polling day.
The videos are part of the National Assembly’s wider campaign of providing unbiased and impartial information on what the referendum on future legislative powers and the assembly election means for the Welsh public.
For the first time the Assembly has also produced a video in British sign language to reach a wider audience – an audio only version will also be released soon.
Further videos including one explaining what the referendum on 3 March is about will be published on the National Assembly website over the coming weeks.
“These videos are specifically targeted at the younger generation and designed to inform without preaching and offer an unbiased, impartial approach.
“They are part of our wider campaign of innovative use of new media and social networks to reach people we would otherwise miss through more traditional channels.”
