Digital Resources

The National Endowment for Science and Technology and the Arts and DCAL  have funded a resource which has been developed by Northern Ireland Screen Digital Film Archive ,the Nerve Centre , and CCEA and is  called Creative Learning in the Digital Age. 

This resource encourages the use of moving images in the classroom and introduces history teachers to a new approach to the Key Stage 3 History Curriculum which will excite and engage  their pupils.

This a fantastic easy to use online resource includes an archive of moving images with accompanying teachers notes exercises and contextual and assessment materials.

Clips and images are easily downloaded from the website and used to create digital projects within a classroom setting.
