Digital Animation And New Literacies

Course Code:MMAMCC_31

Masters Level Module

This module focuses on the growing use of animation in educational settings, exploring its use including in primary schools in connection with literacy, art, ICT and other curriculum areas. It is offered in collaboration with the British Film Institute. The module is structured in such a way that there are periods of distance education, combined with residential sessions which include practising techniques of animation. It is suitable for teachers, lecturers, youth-workers and other professionals, as well as media students, who would like to learn more about making and sharing animation projects. Alongside practical work it seeks to deepen understanding of animation and its place alongside other popular cultural forms in new literacy studies and its links in educational settings with all areas of the curriculum.

The course can be taken on its own, as part of the Institute of Education's MA in Media, Culture and Communications, or as a 30 credit optional module on many of the IOE's MAs.
