The Film Space | Thinking Film Resources

The Film Space | Thinking Film Resources | talkPrimaryAnimation | Scoop.it

One of the most popular resources from Film Education in the last couple of years has been the Thinking Film discs. Alas, stocks of the discs were exhausted back in March. However all five resources (English, Modern Foreign Languages, History, Primary Literacy and Film Language) are now online so that you can now download them, free of charge.

They are fairly weighty resources so can take a while to download. However, as one teacher who downloaded the resources yesterday said, “they are truly awesome”!

talkPrimaryICT's insight:

You can access not only new moving image resources but the library of over 400 online resources produced by Film Education as well. You can search for resources by title or by subject.

Happy downloading!
