This workshop is aimed at teachers and artist educators working in schools who are interested in learning practical digital skills using apps, to enhance curriculum learning.
The content actively supports the new Expressive Arts curriculum and explores the potential for using film, animation and practical arts within the AoLE framework.
The course aims to develop skills and confidence in using simple animation, green screen and editing apps on Ipads for use with pupils.
Course participants will take part in a hands-on session during which they will learn how creative apps can support a range of curriculum learning including oracy, literacy, research, story-telling, writing, numeracy, history, expressive arts and digital competency.
This course offers a framework that supports the new expressive arts curriculum, while also presenting ideas and resources for working with local and regional museums and collections to inspire project work.
Please note, participants are required to bring an iPad and prepare by downloading an app-list. Further information to follow on booking.
