18KE711 Digital Storytelling in the Classroom: Filmmaking

This creative and innovative summer course for 2018 by PDST TiE will introduce teachers to the skills involved in the filmmaking process as they work towards creating their very own short film. Each module in this course is designed to encompass a hands-on approach to learning and mirrors the process, step by step, that participants can use when undertaking filmmaking in their own classrooms.

Each module focuses upon a specific step in the filmmaking process and how this may be applied to a classroom setting to support and enhance pupils’ literacy development across the curriculum. Discussion regarding each aspect is followed by directed tasks and activities to develop participants’ understanding. Throughout the week participants will gain insight into the range of skills associated with filmmaking that their pupils can develop through the effective use of digital technologies, such as those associated with planning a shoot, capturing footage and editing. All participants are fully supported at each stage along the way by PDST TiE Tutors in this area.

Content in this course shall also focus on the Fís Film Project. Here useful resources, as well as examples of note for use in the classroom, will be discussed and explored. Other important related areas of course content to be explored include digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online and exploring the newly constructed Digital Learning Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
