Film Education and the Four Cs: Critical, Cultural, Creative…and Christmas!

Tuesday 30 November | 4.30pm-5.30pm

With the festive season almost here, you might be looking for some new fun activities to engage your classes and get them into the Christmas spirit! In this session Screen Scotland’s Film Education Team, Scott Donaldson and Gail Robertson, will be joined by Jonathan Charles, animator and film education practitioner of D Fie Foe. Scott and Gail will outline some critical and cultural activities using the 3Cs for a short Christmassy film and Jonathan will demonstrate how to make a Christmas-themed animation.

This session is ideal for practitioners new to film education, but also for those with a bit more experience who are looking for some Christmas inspiration!

Wee blether about how Microsoft Teams has been used across the curriculum

Join educators from across Forth Valley and West Lothian Regional Improvement Collaborative for a wee blether about how Microsoft Teams has been used across the curriculum. Share what’s worked for you and your learners

Are you teaching using Microsoft Teams? Are you wondering how others are using the features of Microsoft Teams with their learners?

Then why not join in a chat with colleagues doing likewise from other schools in Forth Valley and West Lothian Regional Improvement Collaborative (Clackmannanshire, Falkirk, Stirling and West Lothian) – share what’s worked for you and your learners, and hear from others.

Join educators from across FVWL RIC for a wee blether on how Microsoft Teams has been used across the curriculum. Share what’s worked for you and your learners. The conversations will be facilitated by Education Scotland and FVWL RIC digital officers. There are different sessions for educators to choose depending on whether your pupils are first level, second level, third level or fourth level, so you can join in whichever sessions suit you.

A Glow login is required to join these sessions. They will take place on Glow, in the FVWL Webinars Digital Learning and Teaching channel in Microsoft Teams. Just sign up at the link below for your choice of session, and joining details will also be sent to you to confirm your place:

CLPL opportunity – Driving forward and embedding whole school digital solutions for Primary and Secondary practitioners who lead/support the digital journey across their school.

This course would be suitable for Primary and Secondary practitioners who lead/support the digital journey across their school.

This progression of 4 sessions will build practitioner digital skills by:

improving own digital skills using online collaborative platforms as Professional Learning Communities

improving colleagues’ Digital Skills by looking at ways to involve staff in an online PLC, for a real life practical application

exploring how we can use the collaboration skills we’ve learned to enhance and support Learning and Teaching. What’s the potential impact for our learners?

exploring how Digital Solutions, including Glow, can help us engage and collaborate with parents/carers or the wider global community

It was the great automotive engineer Caractacus Potts who said, “Teamwork makes the dream work,” but in the 21st Century, what does teamwork even look like? How can we embed collaboration across the curriculum to support and enhance Learning and Teaching in our schools? Indeed, how do we prepare our learners for life, learning and work in an increasingly digital global community?

There is an expectation that participants will set goals for their own school and work towards them between sessions. Participants will also collaborate and support each other in meeting their goals.

Camelon Education Centre, 2-4pm, 10/10/19, 12/12/19, 30/01/20 and 19/03/20 – participants are expected to attend all 4 sessions.

Sign up details will follow in September.
