Before I give you the 411 on the next ETC, I wanted to give you loyal DEN Blog readers the inside scoop on Will Richardson‘s archive.  While it hasn’t been posted to the ETC homepage yet, you can get an advanced screening of it here.  Enjoy!

Wednesday, January 24th, we are pleased to bring you the first EdTechConnect of 2007.  Frank Guttler, Associate Director of the American Film Institute K-12 Screen Education Center, will be sharing an exciting new series called LIGHTS, CAMERA, EDUCATION!

Topic: LIGHTS, CAMERA, EDUCATION! is a video-based resource that profiles actual teachers and students as they incorporate the techniques and collaborative process of filmmaking into the study of traditional academic subjects. Hosted by actor/director Sean Astin and featuring nearly 2 1/2 hours of segmented video, LIGHTS, CAMERA, EDUCATION! is an innovative tool for today’s classrooms that trains teachers to use filmmaking as a method to engage students in the learning process.

This webinar, hosted by AFI Screen Education Associate Director Frank Guttler will introduce the series, outline the steps of the Screen Education process and feature some of the resources of the program.

Who: Frank Guttler is Associate Director of the American Film Institute K-12 Screen Education Center and lead professional development trainer. Frank began his career in television news, visual effects and CGI production. With AFI since 1998, he has served the Advanced Technology Program and Professional Training Division by producing educational and professional outreach programs such as the Los Angeles Digital Filmmaking Celebration and the AFI Digital Video Filmmakers Symposium
