Skip to 0 minutes and 53 seconds Helen Caldwell: If school pupils are making animations to show how a volcano works, “I need to know this because I’m making this and I’m going to show it to these people” that’s a real driver for learning. (SR) We’ll show you a range of incredibly simple yet effective activities that cover research to planning and creating to evaluating. Producing content that will be fully in line with the National Curriculum.
Skip to 1 minute and 14 seconds (JP) We’ve seen time and time again young people really raise their quality of output raise their game in terms of the work they’re doing because they know this is going to be seen it’s going to be shared, it’s going to reflect directly on them as a person or team that made that film. So it’s a powerful tool in that sense. (SR) Through the course you’ll also have an understanding of how filmmaking can have a hugely positive impact on your pupils at every stage. So I hope you can join us on this course, ready to bring the wonder of film into your classroom.
