Digital Skills

  • To make a family learning movie: An idea used in UK school to bring families together while making a movie and how ICT skills were built into a very enjoyable home activity. Link to school for support was available. Ways to tell stories in fun new ways, with music and sound effects. Children can create a trailer for the family movie. School or centre can be created into a Multiplex cinema for the official premiere. This brings in all family members. An awards night can be included and all movies can be posted online.
  • A short film Making Education a Family Matter showcasing Japan, Spain and Korea examines the vital role families play in their child’s learning process. The clip from Spain is interesting as it focuses on encouraging Roma families to attend school.
