Storytelling with Images and Sounds

First steps to filmmaking in primary school with smartphones and iPads

In this course for primary school teachers and educators we will learn all the necessary skills and tools for telling stories with images and sounds by using smartphones and iPads. As we will see, for all of this not much is needed: no prior knowledge or particular technical skills!

Along the way we will get into the different approaches, concepts and teaching methods within the EU, compare them and put them into practice. In the center of most of these concepts of media education lies observation, sensitivity and the process of creation. Hence the focus of this kind of media education shifts from an analytical and receptive film pedagogy towards a pedagogy of the process of creation. The pedagogical support of this process can be understood as a “school of seeing and hearing”.

In the morning our daily program will bring us closer to the different pedagogical concepts of film education within the EU. In the afternoon we will experience these concepts ourselves first-hand by practicing what we’ve learned so far – tasks and exercises have to be fulfilled.
