SHIFT Intensive Model

The Intensive model workshops are typically eight-month experiences for educators, administrators, specialists  and community youth leaders who work with youth and want to integrate digital media arts into their instruction. The workshop begins in the fall with a two-day initial “filmmaking bootcamp” training, followed by additional trainings throughout the school year to support the process and ensure successful classroom integration.  During the year, educators implement a comprehensive, standards-linked filmmaking curriculum manual comprised of five filmmaking genre units: personal narrative, instructional, public service announcement (PSA), and documentary. Each unit contains step-by-step lesson plans organized into pre-production, production and post-production sections, assessment rubrics, a thumb drive containing youth-produced media and instructional videos demonstrating filmmaking concepts, and other additional resources.

Participants are eligible to receive USBE credit and a partial Educational Technology Endorsement upon successful completion of this workshop. We also provide all participants with a complimentary one-year Utah Film Center membership.

Framed by essential questions, this hands-on training allows teachers to explore how digital storytelling, combined with intentionally designed lesson plans, can result in increases in positive learning behaviors and an opportunity for students to acquire, apply and build on core content knowledge.
