:

American Film Institute’s Screen Education Training
In this hands-on workshop, teachers and administrators of all grade levels and subjects will learn how to use filmmaking as a tool to engage student learning. Through experiential lessons, participants will learn to shoot, plan edit and critique film and make connections to their curricula. Participants will preview the program's newest curriculum and professional development components, including the program resources now available at Discovery Education's unitedstreaming.com, and hear the latest program research findings. Participants will understand the premise behind AFI's development of the Screen Education program, stemming from its 40 year history as a national institute providing leadership in screen education and the recognition and celebration of excellence in the art of film, television and digital media. Introducing digital filmmaking into the K-12 classroom can capitalize on the appeal and excitement of collaborative storytelling through moving images as a means to an end-the mastery of traditional subject matter. Learning to understand, consume, evaluate and especially to create media for the screen can improve students' involvement in the classroom, expertise in appropriate use of technology, academic performance and social skills. AFI believes the first step is to engage educators and provide them with the skills, information and confidence to navigate a technology-based environment. This workshop is offered through a partnership with ASSET, the American Film Institute (AFI) and Discovery Educator Network.
