TEEM Evaluations

Picturacy is designed to support the teaching of visual literacy and help children develop practical film making skills.” The software includes film clips from a number of popular children's films and a bank of teaching activities and lesson plans to enable children to work individually, in pairs or small groups or as a class. The program enables children to watch film clips, record and edit soundtracks, capture stills, add speech and thought bubbles, edit images and create storyboards. The lesson plans also give information on using a camera to produce films, types of shots and camera angles, settings and use of colour and sound. The program has been produced by Film Education and support and further activities and suggestions are available from their website.
