Project Description

To capture best practice and consolidate relationships with the creative employers that are participating in the wider creative digital careers programme, the pilot will create 6 x project-based learning resources.

 

Each “capsule” project will be based on the activity undertaken during the programme and include learning resources, video interviews and CPD materials.

 

The pilot will be delivered by Makematic, an online platform that has experience of capturing workshop content.

 

The capsule project would include:

 

  1. Short introductory video trailer to introduce the brief, including live footage from student

field trips and/or classroom activity

 

  1. Five short video tutorials (2-3min), filmed with the team from Time Inc. UK with tips relating to key steps in the process, eg:
  2. how to research and conduct interviews,
  3. how to generate and organise ideas
  4. how to design an app
  5. how to market test an idea
  6. how to present to the client

 

  1. Teacher documentation with curriculum map, lesson plans and CPD notes on the

industry

 

  1. This could also include informal video interview with Time Inc UK staff re key skills, career paths into digital sector
  2. Classroom materials, worksheets, background info relating to the brief

 

By capturing this information, each capsule project would provide teachers with everything

required to deliver similar activity beyond the initial pilot. These resources could also be

distributed beyond the host school to include other participating schools, and indeed any school across London and beyond.
