20TRA365 Make a movie - Home project 2020

 

 

 

 

Navan, Tralee, Clare and Monaghan Education Centres are holding an information webinar
for any teachers or schools interested in taking part in this new and innovative project,
Make a Movie: Home Project 2020.


The aim of this practical project is to introduce and promote filmmaking through schools for
students at home and to provide students with an opportunity to engage with learning in a fun
and creative way.


Filmmaking is an excellent way to integrate multiple subjects from the primary curriculum. It
offers a novel opportunity to enhance the use of oral language and communication skills,
while also promoting creativity, responsibility, individualism and co-operation in students,
either in a mainstream classroom or special education setting at home. Participating in this
project is a fun and innovative way to enable children to learn in a child-led, discovery-based
learning setting. It also offers an excellent assessment tool for teachers as pupils can record
their progress and follow the step by step pre-recorded tutorials.


The information webinar will introduce all aspects of the filmmaking process to schools
facilitating distance learning, outlining the simple and effective use of filmmaking and
providing clear examples of what may be achieved through the process. The advantages of
the project will be explained to teachers as well as an overview of the lessons provided for
classes and schools.

- The classroom, school and local library

- Recommended reads

- Practical classroom ideas

- Creating a dialogue around books

- Teachers as readers

20TRA357 Padlet for Schools

 

 

 

 

Padlet is a free online tool that is best described as an online notice board. Padlet can be used by students and teachers to post notes on a common page. The notes posted by teachers and students can contain links, videos, images and document files. When you register with Padlet, you can create as many “walls” or online notice boards as you like. These walls can set to private or public, with each wall having separate privacy settings. This can facilitate teacher collaboration in a subject department, which is not accessible by students. Private walls can be created by requiring a password to access them, or by limiting access to registered users, with specified emails. As the creator of a wall, teachers can moderate all notes before they appear and privacy settings can be adjusted at any time. Users do not need to sign up to use Padlet, though it is recommended that teachers using it in a classroom setting would do so, in order to edit a wall, moderate posts and collate all class walls into one management screen. Teachers can also choose to set a notification to receive an email whenever a student posts to the teacher’s wall.
