Why should I try this course?
Many teachers feel that they lack the knowledge, or the resources, to teach filmmaking in their schools. The aim of this course is to familiarise teachers with the fundamentals of filmmaking and provide them with strategies for implementing these principles within their own teaching contexts. The opportunity to see how these principles can be applied across a range of technologies, from mobile phones to high end professional cinema equipment, gives teachers the necessary experience and understanding to consider 'how can this work in my classroom?'
Teachers will be given an introduction to teaching film and video, through the basic principles that are consistent to all films, regardless of the technologies being used or the budget available. The principles will be explained, and teachers will gain hands-on experience with a variety of different technologies, applying the principles and understanding how these 'tools' might be used in their classrooms. Because the emphasis is on principles the course is relevant to any teacher who has an interest in teaching film in their classroom. Teachers will be provided with sample programs and activities that they can apply in their own schools.
