  • CIRCA 1948

    This interactive art app explores how the social dynamics of poverty and wealth influence urban planning. This immersive media experience for Canadian History and Social Studies deals with topics such as Canadian politics, economic recession, police corruption, and the black market economy.



    Great for students in Media Studies, this iPad app is inspired by the genius of filmmaker and animation pioneer Norman McLaren. It includes a compilation of over 50 award-winning films by McLaren and offers students a chance to experiment with his paper cut-out, scratch-on-film, and synthetic sound animation techniques.


  • The Loxleys and the War of 1812

    The graphic novel gets interactive—and history comes alive. A defining event in Canada’s past is evoked through the story of a fictional Upper Canadian family.
