The PA Leadership Council is proud to host the American Film Institute’s Screen Ed training in Bucks County, PA on February 25 & 26, 2008. All Discovery Educators are invited!
Location: Bucks County Intermediate Unit
705 N. Shady Retreat Road
Doylestown, Pennsylvania 18901
Dates: Feb. 25-26 (Monday and Tuesday)
Time: 8:00-3:30 (continental breakfast and lunch are provided)
Both Apple and Windows machines will be available, though participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops and digital video cameras. Loaner cameras will be available for the day.
This two-day intensive workshop focuses on the process and tools for using digital filmmaking in a standards-based classroom with the intent of increasing understanding of core subject matter. Designed for K-12 teachers of all subjects, school media specialists, lead teachers, school-site practitioners and facilitators interested in 21st Century literacy. This hands-on workshop directly aligns with AFI’s “Lights, Camera, Education!” videos, curriculum, and handbook now available in Discovery Education streaming. Once you have completed the “Door Scene,” you will easily be able to incorporate the visual grammar of Hollywood film making into your class projects. Breakout sessions will cover the use of media content in digital stories, Web 2.0 tools for storytelling, and tapping into the storytelling potential of DE streaming. Participants will leave the workshop empowered to employ digital storytelling with their students.
Joe Brennan (STAR Discovery Educator, Apple Distinguished Educator, Author of the Digital Storytelling Blog, and on and on) will be our fearless leader for this incredible workshop.
