From EMI Music:
This is the iPhone/iPod App version of our FIS Professional Development Course for Teachers. This App has been designed in such a way that corresponds to the complete production cycle of making a film in a classroom environment. It has been designed to introduce the medium of film into the School Curriculum. It presents teachers with a series of lessons geared to developing and promoting the teachers appreciation of, understanding of and response to film. It also provides teachers with a practical guide to delivering film theory and practice into a classroom environment. FS Film in Schools can enhance the creative and educational learning experiences of children and provide them with direct involvement in the learning process. The project will emphasise the engagement of children in both artistic expression and response to the medium. Specifically, project activities will help those involved to develop key skills in communication, social and personal awareness, problem solving, investigation and analysis, critical thinking, inquiry, and and interaction. This App has been designed to help the teacher achieve these learning goals.
