Teacher Survey - Film: 21st Century Literacy

Film: 21st Century Literacy is a three year project funded through a National Lottery grant and delivered by FILMCLUB, BFI, Skillset, Film Education and First Light. Through the Strategy they have been strengthening film culture among young audiences across the UK, and training educators to develop a sustainable film education infrastructure.

They are currently running a UK wide survey to research the benefits of using film in the classroom.

The research they are undertaking is about film related projects that are conducted during lesson time, but outside of Film or Media Studies lessons. The questionnaire should take no more than 10 minutes and can be accessed via the following link: www.surveymonkey.com/s/filmliteracyteacherquestionnaire

Survey participants will automatically be entered into a free prize draw to win an iPad 2 16GB if they meet the eligibility criteria. To be eligible you must be a teacher who has used film in school in a subject other than Film or Media Studies within the last three years, and have completed the questionnaire by Friday 15th July 2011.

More information and another link to the questionnaire can be found on their website, www.21stcenturyliteracy.org.uk/

They are trying to build up as wide a picture as possible so please feel free to pass this on to other colleagues who have used film in the classroom.

Thank you for your help.
