Description

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 content (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 content. 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.

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!
