Samsung Electronics UK and the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) have joined forces to bring Shakespeare's famous Romeo and Juliet Welcombe Hills School at Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Shakespeare's classic love story, its characters, themes, and key scenes. The activities were enriched by gadgets including Samsung tablets, the Gear 360 headset, and the Samsung Flip touchscreen. Through these technologies, Samsung and RSC were able to tailor the experience for students according to their needs, bringing them closer to Shakespeare's work in creative new ways.
The Samsung Flip has a great tool for digital painting, and students were able to participate in a digital costume design activity that took inspiration from costumes used by RSC in previous Romeo and Juliet productions. Pupils with an inclination towards music creation were also able to create text-based soundscapes using Galaxy tablets. The Gear VR headset offered students a different, immersive perspective.
“Staff members at the school were extremely happy to learn that they had a great opportunity to help them their understanding of the text, themes, characters and key scenes in the playsaid Georgia White, RSC Regional Associate Schools Manager.The different uses of technology in each of the activities really helped to the students in the play, offering experiences. “
Shakespeare's work appeared first on SamMobile.
