Nerve Centre Offers Free Animation Training To KS2 Teachers

Nerve Centre are delighted to offer KS2 teachers the opportunity to take part in free introductory animation training through the Digital Book of Kells project as part of the City of Culture 2013 Education Programme!

The Digital Book of Kells initative was designed to resource and facilitate schools to embed creative digital media skills, ensuring a real legacy in our schools for years to come. Using Colmcille’s connection with Derry~Londonderry as an entry point, the Nerve Centre, in partnership with CCEA and Culture Company created a suite of online digital resources that will allow pupils to explore the life and learning in Columba's monasteries and to study the colourful Celtic artwork made there between the 6th and 8th centuries.

'KS2 Intro To Animation Teacher Training' takes place during November 5 and 6 2013, with the aim to:

  • Allow pupils to explore Derry-Londonderry's local heritage through a creative ICT project
  • Provide teachers with our resources specially-created for the project including: teacher guides, whiteboard resources, pupil workbooks
  • Introduce teachers to creating assessable stop-motion animations with their class, bringing to life Colm Cille's golden age of learning and the Celtic Artwork that came from it
  • Equip teachers with hints and tips and confidence in exploring animation from: learning film language to creating storyboards to making characters to using digital cameras to shoot and free PC software to edit and add sound with their class
