New Guidance: Students as Movie Makers

You may have missed Richard Kennett‘s resource that was added onto the site in July.

Describing his workshop at SHP12, ‘Students As Movie Makers, Picturing the past – helping students to communicate using visual media‘ he writes:

When I was a child ‘visual history’, on the whole, meant Ladybird books with their combination of text and illustrations, but in the words of Bob Dylan “the times they are a changing”. With video sharing sites like YouTube, students today have instant access to a vast array of audio-visual historical resources. Now is the time to take advantage of this revolution and, as history teachers, capitalise on these visual media to help our students communicate their understanding of history. Allowing students to make videos or slideshows that combine text, image and music can result in some truly outstanding outcomes.
