Using Film in the Classroom – 8-9 November 2017 – Manchester

Young people have very powerful reactions to what they see on screen. The NUT is very pleased to be working in collaboration with IntoFilm (delivering the BFI 5-19 Education Scheme). Through courses in using film in the classroom and our filmmaking courses we can offer teachers links to professional filmmakers and the film industry. Led by specialist filmmakers, the course will cover the language of film as well as practical hands-on training offering all teachers the opportunity to examine how to use film to enhance their everyday teaching.

We will examine:

  • how to use film as a tool for improving young people’s comprehension, analysis and deduction skills
  • how teachers can use the unique ability of film to engage all pupils across a range of curricular subjects
  • how film analysis can lead to the creation of quality writing for a range of uses
  • how simple filmmaking can be harnessed in the classroom to help teachers asses and engage pupils
  • how filmmaking can be used as at a catalyst for creative work
  • how animation can be created with pupils in a rage of subjects for a range of uses
  • basic film making techniques enabling participants to run sessions using whatever equipment to which they have access
  • how using film can narrow gaps in access to cultural resources
