Both Jamie and Tyler represented KCAI recently at the AIGA's massaging media2 education conference in Boston. Jamie presented her very intuitive tools for trolling through, sorting and displaying digital "collections" in multimedia and Tyler presented his ideas for a web-based teaching tool that demonstrates the persuasive qualities of time-based media.
Here they are in action!
