A distinctive feature of contemporary life is mobile, wearable and ubiquitous computing devices with their strongly interactive character that have become an integral part of our lives. These devices have a diversity of interfaces and functions that we use in our personal, social and public life. Fundamental knowledge and skills in not only the use of new technology but also the seamless integration of it with people’s current devices and lifestyles is essential for interactive media and games design students. This subject will deliver an agile curriculum designed to accommodate the fast pace of changing technology and embed independent learning principles to allow students to critically evaluate new technologies as they become available and incorporate them throughout their vocations.
