Heathlands School Media Projects
One of the KS3 attainment targets from the government’s computing programme of study is “Undertake creative projects that involve selecting, using and combining multiple applications, preferably across a range of devices, to achieve challenging goals…”
DfE, September 2013
Media projects involving video & film were introduced by the computing teacher through the curriculum, to develop creative thinking and enhance career choices in the Arts: media, computer gaming, animation, film production, lighting or sound design. This has now extended to KS4 qualifications. Teachers across lower and upper school also develop the children's digital literacy skills through animation, drama and video work. This creative learning is growing through subject-specific projects to now also be a source of teaching - empowering the creators and enriching the schools and students who use their videos to learn.
