Live Lesson Takeovers - Scots on Film

Last year myself and a colleague held a series of Live lessons which were beamed into Primary schools across our Local Authority. We had over 20 classes joining in to learn about using Video to enhance literacy outcomes with our lesson focus being on the Use of Scots.

We ran three, one hour long sessions where we used Scots poetry as a starter to create green screen movies and then pupils created their own video news reports in Scots about a creature/beastie of their own creation. Throughout the sessions we delivered content on how to use various features of iMovie and Sketches School and gave time over to pupils to follow the instructions to create their own examples. Pupils also shared their projects with us at the end where they wanted to.

The Create guides were used as a starting point for these sessions and we gave educators video guides as a support after the sessions in case anyone missed any of the content or needed to look back on how to do any of the elements we covered.

Feedback from educators was that the lessons not only equipped them with practical skills but also sparked a creative fire and they were excited thinking about the potential projects they can now undertake with the skills and understanding they learned and the unique digital creations they can bring to life.

I have shared the resources from our session below. Please feel free to use or adapt as is useful.

This is a great project that could be adapted for almost any "news report" subject matter! Excellent demonstration videos that covered all the little details - like how the news title options only appear if the news theme is enabled first. Thanks for posting, I enjoyed watching it all!
