For teachers and educators with an interest in the relationship between film and children's learning, the course introduces participants to children's film culture and demonstrates the significant role of film in children's developing literacy

Children first encounter stories on the screen well before they learn to decode the language of books. It is therefore essential that educators engage with the learning brought about through their involvement with the moving image. 

The course introduces participants to children's film culture and demonstrates the significant role of film in children's developing literacy. For teachers and educators with an interest in the relationship between film and children's learning, it covers children's film culture and experience; film and pedagogy; and how
classroom practice can build the two together.

It is run by distance learning, with residential workshops and a web site. It provides an opportunity for teachers to undertake practice- based research. The course is recognised as providing 30 credits towards the online MA in New Literacies at Sheffield University.
