I’m Tarah Patel, a former secondary school teacher, now working as the Filmmaking Coordinator at Into Film. During this course, my colleagues and I will teach you how to use both still and moving image in your classroom to support literacy learning no matter the subject. Into Film, one of the UK’s largest education charities is partnering up with the world-famous Tate Britain to bring you a course that will increase your confidence and skills around using a range of imagery in the classroom.

Working with the film has had an enormous impact on engagement with children. Improving the attention spans, they want to be more collaborative in their approach to learning and they’re just more inspired to raise their standard of writing to a whole new level. We’ll show you a range of incredibly simple yet effective activities that could change the way you teach forever.

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to bring a range of image-based stimuli into your classroom to produce engaging, exciting, and focused literacy lessons. You’ll be confident producing simple short films and animations, and you’ll have a range of frameworks and resources at your fingertips to help guide you.
