For those of you who want to try film making in the classroom, you can’t go wrong with the Fís Film Project. Here is some information from the PDST Technology in Education about the project.
The FÍS Film project encourages children to explore the medium of film in the primary classroom developing essential skills in moving-image literacy, communication, teamwork, visual arts and numeracy.
This year the standard of entry was unprecedented. Twenty four finalists and thirteen highly commended schools will be awarded winning prizes in various categories at an awards ceremony on the 4th November in the Helix at 12.30 which will be streamed live.
