Ubiquitous in the digital age, images have become an essential tool in research and pedagogical environments. We’ve come a long way from the carousel of slides in a projector, and technological change continues to accelerate year on year. But images are only one part of the picture. Hidden in the shadow of high quality images, there is invaluable work in the creation, management and use of data about objects, facilitating new means of discovery and opening the door to new methods of analysis.
In this context, we turn our attention to how digital tools and resources are used in education and learning, and how we can explore a real opportunity to strengthen the matrix of research, technology and education. By providing a forum for our existing network of colleagues and peers to engage with these issues, we hope to also attract new expertise and collaborations in fully realising the value of digital tools in the educational setting. By understanding the interdisciplinary nature of digital tools, we can stimulate further collaboration, strengthen the matrix of resources, research and pedagogy, and maximise our contribution to society whilst keeping the pursuit of education clearly in focus.
