Digital Media

Digital media are everywhere today! Our social lives, our business lives and our personal identities are inseparable from the media technologies we depend on. The internet, smart-phones and social media have changed the face of the media industries, introducing a revolution in citizen journalism and a new way to interact with broadcast media.

Content makers need to do more than write a good story. Armed with digital tools and a digital media degree from Southern Cross University, they are multi-skilled and multi-talented: taking the photograph, recording the interview, editing the video, laying out the blog entry and sharing it across social media.

My grandma’s house.

Everything here reminds her of grandpa, and the live they shared together. I used to worry about her sometimes, but after speaking to the people at Grey Wolf Technologies I don’t worry about grandma anymore.
