Watch Africa: Learning Through Film Workshop
Want to know how you can use film for education purposes? This workshop will be led by Colours of the Alphabet director Alastair Cole and producer Nick Higgins.
Documentary filmmaker, and Newcastle University Lecturer in Film Practice, Alastair Cole, will lead a discussion on their work in using film to create new teaching and learning opportunities for students and children of all ages. The workshop will follow the screening of Colours of the Alphabet, directed by Alastair Cole, and a film which, as well as festival success and cinema release, is being developed for the use in classrooms of primary, intermediate and high school levels.
The director is also the co-author of the book and DVD resource Learning Through Film: Human Rights in Scotland. The discussion will offer both parents and teachers and opportunity to hear about the opportunities that film has in providing exciting and new learning opportunities for their students and children.
