Learn to integrate technology into classroom instruction.
SHIFT: Filmmaking in the Classroom workshop – a two-day fully-funded workshop (at no cost to participating teachers), training educators to integrate technology into classroom instruction.
Participants learn the fundamentals of cinematography, work in teams to produce short films, share ideas for classroom planning and integration, and learn how to use the process of filmmaking as an effective learning tool that motivates and inspires students.
These hands-on professional development experiences provide 15 hours of in-depth direct instruction to teachers, providing them with an instructional skillset and media-rich lesson plans to facilitate the production of content-linked documentaries, public service announcements, instructional videos, and personal narratives.
Utah Film Center encourages “teacher teams” of educators from one school site. Research has shown that the tools and skills taught at the workshop are better retained, integrated into your schools and departments, and also very fun when you come with a colleague or two. You must each register individually below. If you are unable to come in a “teacher team” you are still very welcome to register and attend!
All training and curriculum costs are covered by generous grant funding. Travel, lodging, and substitute teacher costs are to be covered by the participants.
