Don't miss out on this great collaboration that took place at the Festival! This weekend, a special BBC World Service's "The Forum" will air. Bridget Kendall is joined by director of the celebrated MIT media lab Joi Ito, who thinks the internet enables a type of openness which is shaping approaches in education. Leading advocate for the American video game industry, Mike Gallagher, argues we can achieve connectedness and empathy through game play. We also hear from filmmaker and theatre director Julie Taymor who cautions us about the limiting power of screens and digital technology.
