A 3-day workshop

Educational Radiotelevision (EduTV) organised the MEDEAnet workshop “Developing documentaries in schools” on 5-7 April 2013 in Athens, Greece and invited me to be the lead speaker. The workshop was dedicated at Primary and Secondary level teachers who already have a prior experience in video production, basic knowledge in ICT, and Web 2.0 tools.

Hands on and fun

As a film director and media educator, my aim was to focus on methodologies related to documentary, exploring how various tools and resources can be used to enhance creativity in schools and finally understanding how documentary can be a multi-modal, effective, informative and expressive medium. During the 3-day workshop the 24 participants learned how to refine their shooting and editing techniques, to enhance their creative techniques, and focus on methodologies and educational content that could make teaching exciting and attractive to young people.
