Do you have students who are keen to enter the LitM Competition “Let Me Tell You a Story, Let Me Tell You in My Languagebut are unsure of how to guide them to produce an eBook or digital film?

Come along to our workshops to learn the skills and understandings required.

The E-book workshop provides a practical opportunity for language teachers to experiment with a range of apps to build confidence and explore some ways they can assist students create multimodal and bilingual texts. Participants are encouraged to bring their own devices (with access to an app store account). iPads and Win8 devices will also be available for use.

The Film workshop will assist teachers in preparing students for the creation of an audiovisual production. Focus will be on narrative in short film form and how to incorporate voice-over. Tips and strategies on how to guide students through production processes such as filming and editing will be provided. This workshop is suited to teachers who are new to narrative construction in film.

    • Hi Yogita
      Unfortunately these workshops are designed for teachers/adults who in turn will facilitate storytelling with young learners through eBooks and film in lessons at mainstream or community language schools. We have another workshop on 11 April. Hope you can make that one.
