AFI’s Coming to Pittsburgh

Afi_logo_2The PA Leadership Council is proud to host the American Film Institute’s Screen Ed training in the Steel City of Pittsburgh, PA on May 11 and 12, 2007.  All STAR Discovery Educators are invited!

Carnegie Science Center, Pittsburgh, PA
Friday, May 11 (5 pm to 8 pm)
Saturday, May 12 (9 am to 3 pm)
Cost = $0 for STAR Discovery Educators

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 unitedstreaming.  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.

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. 

If you are interested, please RSVP to Bridget Belardi ( of the PA Leadership Council by Monday, April 30, 2007.

STAR Discovery Educators are permitted to register one additional guest each (space permitting).  Sign up today.

    I just want to tell everyone who has a chance to go to the Pittsburgh AFI Institute that they should definitely take the opportunity! I recently attended the AFI Institute in Dallas, Texas, and it was very much worth the time to attend!

    Curious if the AFI entourage will make it out West this year? past Texas, towards the other coast…it seems a little like western migration, with detours.
