Digital Storytelling in the Classroom: Animation (FÍS Animation)
This course will introduce teachers to the skills involved in the animation making process as they work towards creating their very own short animation. Each module in this course is designed to encompass a hands-on approach to learning and mirrors the process, step by step, that participants can use when undertaking animation making in their own classrooms. Each module focuses upon a specific step in the animation making process and how this may be applied to a classroom setting to support and enhance students’ literacy development right across the curriculum, and in particular in relation to visual art. Discussion regarding each step is followed by directed tasks and activities to develop participants’ understanding. Throughout the week participants will gain insight into the range of skills associated with animation making that their students can develop through the effective use of digital technologies, such as those relating to the planning, shooting and editing stages. All participants are fully supported at each stage along the way by Tutors in this area. Content in this course shall also focus on the FÍS Film Project. Here useful resources, as well as examples of note for use in the classroom, will be discussed and explored.
Importantly, participants will also gain an appreciation regarding the importance of the animation industry in Ireland, as a world leader in this area. Other key related areas of course content to be explored include digital citizenship and internet safety, finding and selecting good quality digital content online and exploring the newly constructed Digital Learning Framework and how a school may go about creating their digital learning plan in this regard.
