Colin Elsey

It has been ages since we last met up with, but ladies and gentlemen… Colin Elsey becomes the latest Ultranaut to have tea on the Cleveratom (2006-2011) sofa ….

We’re all big fans of Colin and his work in the field of Design & Technology in innovative learning and back in the lab days Colin was the heart and soul of many Ultralab (1990-2006) projects.

Colin and I began working at Ultralab (1990-2006) around the same time as each other back in November 2000.  In 2001 we worked together on the RNLI’s Lifeboats.TV project and I learned a lot from him as we travelled the length and breadth of the United Kingdom to collect the stories of lifeboat crews everywhere for a new and engaging interactive website for kids.

A quick search on this blog brings up many happy memories working with Colin, as does a quick search over on digitalcreativity.org which brings up even more.

It was great to see Colin again, and we look forward to more frequent visits.

For a trip down memory lane take a look at the lifeboats.tv project film made by Colin and myself (it will take a long time to load, but is worth the wait)….

Also to get some sense of how big this project was for us, watch the other movie which includes everyone we ever interviewed….
