Techniques in Film making

  1. 1. How Film making fits into the world of student learning<br />By Jay Cahill-EDUC1751<br />
  2. 2. A Vision of K-12 Students Today<br />Relevance to the student and subject area<br />The film conveys the message that technology has transformed the lives of students. <br />The use of children with a look of desperation symbolises that they want their voice to be heard. <br />This inter-relates with the reality of today’s world and classroom. The needs of students are commonly ignored.<br />Some teachers don’t have the capacity/skills to provide students with technologically based lessons. <br />
  3. 3. Many students connect with the film’s focal message; technology is able to enhance their engagement within the classroom. <br />Another feature which contributes to building connections- the use of close up camera angles to become personal with the children and music which creates a tense atmosphere.<br />This engages students with the true reality that technology is a vital factor within learning and general life of today. Most relate to the needs of the students in the film<br />
  4. 4. Relevance to subject area<br />Repetition:- continuously showing cards which captures the inner voice of the student.<br />This speaks to me as an aspiring science teacher. This is relevant to science as it enables me to address the technological demands of the science curriculum.<br />Also enables me to create innovative measures in delivering course material. Science course depends on the use of technology and heavily caters for its use. <br />The statement that science is widely based on technology interrelates with the films emphasis on its importance, seen through the presence of technological features throughout the film<br />
  5. 5. Relevance to pedagogical area<br />The emphasis of technology in the film can be readily used to improve the delivery of technologically based lessons. <br />Teachers are able to gain a clear insight as to how they can better cater for their students. <br />The quality and delivery of lessons can thus be improved by viewing this film.<br />teachers are also encouraged to listen to and consider the wants and needs of students in their classrooms. <br />This film reflects the transformation of the classroom in today’s world, showing that students are becoming highly dependable on technological use.<br />
  6. 6. Viewers can clearly see that students want their voices to be heard; teachers must find a way to adapt to the modern needs of student within the classroom. <br />This film can provides a view into the notion that teachers can provide new opportunities for students. <br />The film basically conveys that if the teachers adapt to modern technology and use it to build strong and successful lessons, students will better engage themselves within class and as a result understand the content in a relatable format.<br />
  7. 7. Forbidden<br />Relevance to student and subject area<br />The use of effective lighting and emotive music- interacts with the audience. <br />Supports the context of the narrative, which explores the generations of women living under the same roof, caring for each other. <br />This is a real world connection which successfully conveys a message to students. <br />The effective use of filming techniques such as close-up shots and various camera angles.<br />Enables the students to devise effective film making strategies to support the modern learning style. <br />
  8. 8. Although this film is rather effective, it is difficult to establish connections with the science curriculum. <br />The message conveyed and the plot holds little connection to scientific strategies, techniques and topics:- it is based on a fictional narrative which explores the heartfelt story of women living under the same roof caring for one another.<br />In saying this however, it is not to say it is a bad film-it just doesn’t effectively connect with the science curriculum, based on the use of camera angles, and special effects such as music and lighting.<br />
  9. 9. Relevance to pedagogical area<br />Although little connection can be seen toward the film and science curriculum, the film is still most useful from a pedagogical perspective. <br />Film making is an imperative aspect to the science curriculum, which can be used to achieve syllabus outcomes. <br />Students can examine this film to gain an insight into the process of film making, and how to produce a well executed film. <br />Techniques used in the production of this film, such as sound effects, camera angles, lighting etc, can also be readily applied to science-based films.<br />
  10. 10. By readily examining these techniques, students are enabled to execute their own film.<br />Such a task enables the student to be creative and innovative in their own ideas.<br />This also suffices the common use of technology within the classroom to support 21st century learning techniques.<br />
