Photo & Video Making in your Classroom: The Educational Power of Multimedia - Florence

Rating: 5/53 users

Being born after the digital revolution, today’s students may find traditional activities such as reading extremely boring while they naturally pay attention to audiovisual contents (e.g., videos, photos, and audio resources). In contrast, their teachers, who likely had a more conventional education, might feel unarmed in communicating with their students through the language of the new media.

This course aims to bridge the gap by introducing the participants to the educational power of audiovisual contents. Participants will learn to use and adapt existing audiovisual resources as well as to create their own to enhance and stimulate their students’ learning.

In the course, participants will acquire a practical understanding of the most effective devices and free software for managing and producing videos, photos, and sounds. They will learn to gather professional and safe online resources, uploading and sharing materials online, managing timelines, audio and photos, and adding subtitles to a video. By its end, they will be confident in designing educational projects using video and photo technologies for their students.

All our courses in Florence include 2 Florence guided tours and 1 full day excursion in Tuscany (usually on Saturday).

I am delighted with the course, the topic and teacher Lorenzo. I learned how to use great programs that are free and how to best use them in my work. The school is beautiful, the people at the school were very kind, the city is the inspiration for the theme we had. I am very happy to had this experience. Thank you for everything!

As a computer science teacher I looked for a course to improve my video editing skills and I hit with this course, that's for sure! I used to work with other software and methodology and Lorenzo taught me an interesting way of working and a free but powerful video editing tool. And, of course, a beautiful city to walk.
