VBIT member, Colleen Carey was visiting Tofino, BC last April and noticed their pedestrian crossings had whales painted into the design.

Bev Knutson-Shaw just loves stories, but then again who doesn’t? Through the art of digital storytelling (DST) she has had the privilege of helping many people and organizations share theirs.
“While I was going to grad school I read something about DST, a form of digital media production that combines narrative, pictures, videos, animations and music to tell a personal story, “ says Bev. “As a teacher, I thought this might be a really great tool to use in the classroom and so I started looking into how I might learn how to facilitate DST. “

Smartwatches are the new ‘it’ device…almost every major manufacturer revealed some sort of fancy new smartwatch-like device.

Other notable smartwatches include a watch from LG Audi that has the ability to control Audi cars, including the ability to start the vehicle, drive it a short distance and tweak climate control settings, as well as open and lock doors.
