Making Videos

6th Form students have the power with the tools in their pockets, or bags, to become like a Hollywood Director. Using their smartphones, iPods etc plus some software like MovieMaker or iMovie they can produce informative, entertaining resources to help in their learning.

These examples show 6th form students producing resources to help understand St Augustine's and St Irenaeus' Theodicies. It's a hands on and engaging way to learn about a topic. It's fun to share and hopefully becomes a memorable part of the course!

Some things to think about:

  • School rules on mobile phones. Think about time/place where is appropriate to use.
  • Comedy aspect... Don't sacrifice good content for what could end up simply being an 'in joke'.
  • Planning... This will save a lot of time in the long run.

Do you enjoy making videos? Do you think it helps with your learning? What would you make a video about?

Some examples from students around the UK:

St Augustine's Theodicy:

St Irenaeus’ Theodicy:
