In difficult times of isolation, ACMI have come forward with FREEonline learning to keep the kids at primary and secondary levels busy and engaged during the Easter school holidays which runs from Sat 28 Mar to Mon 13 Apr 2020.
ACMI's education team have created an environment of fun and educational online activities for students of all ages. The learning resources are engaging, free to use, and aligned with curriculum. Kids can spend time indoors exploring screen culture and build new skills by coding their own video game, write a film script or mould an animation. By tacking the basics of script formatting and advanced shorthand, the kids can learn to create their own script. It wouldn't be a surprise if this event piques the interest of the adults too.
The Magic of Aardman - education resource will give inspiration leading to stop-motion animation. Find more inspiration HERE.
Video Game Builder - Kids can step behind the screen and engage with the design process of gaming and develop a digital version of a well-known playground game using Scratch.
Horton Hears a Who! is for the younger kids to explore both Dr Seuss's famous book and the 2008 film adaptation as well as hands-on, creative activities - including how to make a miniature garden.
Education supporting teacher and student learning - a monthly screen education blog written by ACMI's expert Education team. This blog links handy resources to give new perspectives on hot topics in education so be sure to subscribe and follow.
