Digital Storytelling in the Classroom: Animation
This creative summer course for 2019 by PDST TiE will introduce teachers to the skills involved in the animation making process as they work towards creating their very own short animation. 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 animation making in their own classrooms.
Participants will be guided through the animation making process, while also learning how this may be applied to a classroom setting to support and enhance pupils’ literacy development across the curriculum, and in particular in relation to visual arts. Throughout the week, participants will gain insight into the range of skills associated with animation making which their pupils can develop through the effective use of digital technologies, such as those associated with planning, shooting and editing stages.
Importantly, participants will also gain an appreciation regarding the importance of the animation industry in Ireland, as a world leader in this area. 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 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 might go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
