Status Update: Meaningful Filmmaking in the Classroomawesome!

Filmmaking is an exciting way to apply BC's new curriculum using cross-curricular, project-based learning.  But many teachers are hesitant to take on large, technology-based projects with so many different things that can go wrong.  We're here to showcase a project partnering Surrey's Learning Centres with professional artists from The Cinematheque in Vancouver.  Youth created work that explores social media and its varied and complex real-world implications for themselves and their peers, incorporating critical thinking, english language arts, and media education into the project.  From writing and video planning to production, editing, and sharing in an elementary school setting, explore one exciting model for how to bring meaningful filmmaking and cross-curricular learning into the classroom.
