With technology in education reinventing itself on what feels like weekly basis, gizmos & gadgets such as 3D printers and VR headsets continue to enable educators to reach a whole new teaching level. For Forget-Me-Not-Productions; a green screen, Rode microphone and a GoPro are the only staple gadgets needed. These items engage and also stimulate pupils in truly creative learning workshops. These workshops have the ethos of the Donaldson Report (Successful Futures) at its core.
