PERSISTENCE OF VISION:ANIMATION AND POETRY IN PRIMARY SCHOOLS
Persistence of Vision was one of the Film: 21st Century Literacy pilot projects in 2009-10. Working with 18 teachers and nearly 300 children in rural primary schools, it has shown that embedding critical and creative animation activities within the literacy curriculum over an extended period brings significant benefits to teaching and learning and enables both teachers and learners to see film as an integrated part of children’s learning, not as a specialism or an extra.
