A digital magpie, interested in applications of technology (especially games) to learning and public engagement with culture and science. Until November 2012 I was the Multimedia Producer at the Wellcome Trust, but I’m now a freelance digital producer, working part-time at the Tate on various mobile projects. I am a big fan of evaluating stuff and sharing it. I am co-director of edugameshub (a global community of educational games makers) and help run the London Educational Games Meetup group (LEGup) which you should join if you make, use or are interested in educational games of any kind. Co-founded ME:CA, an initiative to help cultural organisations create great mobile experiences. Also a documentary short filmmaker.
If you’re so inclined, you can follow me on twitter, am @marthasadie.
Have a play of some of the games I’ve worked on here, (to grow your own neuron), here, (to test how good your memory/ability to distinguish different types of forceps is), here (if you want to try your hand at opium smuggling in the Pearl Delta during the 1830s) and here (if you’ve always fancied joining the team from Spooks).
