Developing Literacy: A Journey from Still Image to Film

TATE Year 3 Project and Into Film via FutureLearn


Discover inspiring ways to help develop literacy using still and moving images

Recent research has shown that using still and moving images in the classroom can have a sustainable, positive impact on young people’s literacy skills.

On this course, specially designed for teachers, you will learn how to use images, including images of the self (‘selfies’), to create extended writing, creative narrative, poetry and pupil made films and animations.

You will explore a range of lesson activity ideas, get access to resources that you can use straightaway in your lessons, and get advice and insights from film education experts at Into Film.

This course is designed for teachers and educators who would like to develop their student’s reading and writing, although parents or anyone with an interest in developing young people’s literacy will also benefit from the approaches that are explored throughout the course.
