Critical Connections

One of the speakers in our November  workshop is Marie Gaillard, a teacher, who participated in Critical Connections. Multilingual Digital Storytelling Project led by Dr Jim Anderson and Dr Vicky Macleroy ( Goldsmiths, University of London). Below is showcased the film her year 5 pupils created as part of the Critical Connections project.

The Critical Connections Project was initiated in 2012 with funding from the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. According to its authors it is about ‘enabling young people across the primary and secondary age range to create and share multilingual digital stories. It offers an approach to language learning, literacy and citizenship which recognises that communication is enhanced when plurilingual and digital resources are drawn upon purposefully and creatively.’
