VIDEO FOR EDUCATION

Filming and editing led by our BAFTA-nominated director

Let pupils, parents and stakeholders see and hear your passion for learning

Create content which can be viewed on computers, tablets or phones

Video can be used in a wide variety of ways to help your school, local authority, MAT or educational organisation get your message across effectively and affordably.

Here are just a few of the videos we’ve made for our educational clients over the past few years. If you’d like us to come and talk to you about how video could be used to meet your aims and objectives, do get in touch with us at mail@seehearteach.com.

Promoting your programme or organisation

Video is a hugely powerful tool for helping people to get to know you quickly. A video such as the one above that we created for the PiXL Club and the Noisy Classroom’s Up for Debate programme gives an overview of all the key elements of the programme in just two and a half minutes. Voxpops with teachers and pupils make a powerful case for schools to join up.

A REPLACEMENT FOR TEXT-HEAVY DOCUMENTATION

Teachers in schools are bombarded with lots of Word documents and PDFs. A simple-but-compelling alternative is to get the people who are delivering your message to speak directly to their audience. The example above is from a suite of 20 films – all filmed in a single day, and edited in less than a day and a half – created for the English Speaking Board, who wanted their examiners to convey the key criteria for their oracy-focused exams.

  • Highly affordable (single day's shoot with a single 'self-shooting' director/cameraman/sound recordist)

online lessons & learning materials

Video can be a great way to give learners an overview of a new topic, or to recap some key ideas. The video above is one of a series of 12 ‘topics stimulus videos’ that we have created for the Up for Debate programme. They feature the two characters ‘Hugh de Syde’ (a quick-witted and objective journalist) and ‘Professor Ivan O’Pinion’ (a highly-knowledgeable, and also highly-opinionated academic). They’ve proved immensely popular and effective amongst their key audience of 11-14 year olds in schools across England.

  • Character-driven approach
  • Motion graphics and green-screen effects

INSIGHTS INTO EFFECTIVE TEACHING & LEARNING

Despite the boom in educational publishing, it remains immensely difficult to write down exactly what constitutes great teaching and learning. Video can provide a really strong sense of why a gifted practitioner’s teaching is effective, and what it looks like when pupils are really engaged. This video was filmed over the course of a weekend’s R&D into how radio drama could be used in the primary classroom.
