This creative PDST TiE summer course 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.

Participants will be guided through the filmmaking process, while also learning how this may be applied to a classroom setting to support and enhance pupils literacy development across the curriculum. Throughout the week, participants will gain insight into the range of skills associated with filmmaking which their pupils can develop through the effective use of digital technologies, such as those associated with planning a shoot, capturing footage and editing.

Content in this course shall also focus on the Fís Film Project, a highly successful film project for primary schools that explores film as a medium of expression in relation to the arts, and introduces children to aspects of the filmmaking process. Here, useful resources as well as examples of note for use in the classroom, will be discussed and explored.

Other key areas of course content to be discussed and explored during the week also include digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online and exploring the Digital Learning Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
