Course Description

This course is made available through the eLearnAfrica and FutureLearn partnership.

Discover inspiring ways to help develop literacy using still and moving images


Recent research has shown that using still and moving images in the classroom can have a sustainable, positive impact on young people’s literacy skills.


On this course, specially designed for teachers, you will learn how to use images, including images of the self (‘selfies’), to create extended writing, creative narrative, poetry and pupil made films and animations.


You will explore a range of lesson activity ideas, get access to resources that you can use straightaway in your lessons, and get advice and insights from film education experts at Into Film.


This course is designed for teachers and educators who would like to develop their student’s reading and writing, although parents or anyone with an interest in developing young people’s literacy will also benefit from the approaches that are explored throughout the course.


Certificate cost may vary. You will be redirected to the host page for cost and payment options.

Into Film is a UK-wide film and education charity, which puts film at the heart of children and young people’s learning, contributing to their cultural, creative and personal development.

Its film clubs are available free to all state funded schools and colleges and provide numerous opportunities for teaching and learning through film, including access to a diverse catalogue of over 4,000 films, dynamic curriculum linked and enrichment resources, guidance for filmmaking and film reviewing, one-to-one club support and training and CPD for teachers.

In Scotland, Into Film runs a bespoke film education programme, created in collaboration with key arts and education organisations to support literacy across learning, enable the use of film across all areas of the Curriculum for Excellence and be accessible and appropriate for young people throughout Scotland.

Into Film incorporates the legacy of two leading film education charities, First Light and FILMCLUB, and will be working together with a range of partners in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
