Digital Shakespeare – our blog for RESPublished: 30 September 2016
Our Schools Membership and Support Officer, Lincia Daniel, has penned a blog for the Research and Education Space (RES) about our work supporting Shakespeare in schools.
‘At Learning on Screen we’ve launched a new project for schools called Digital Shakespeare. Building on our expertise in supporting the education sector to access and use the moving image and sound, Digital Shakespeare will give a total of six London schools (two primary, one special and three secondary) access to our video on demand platform, BoB, for a year.
‘During this time, teachers in participating schools will be trained and supported to use BoB to curate Shakespeare-related clips, programmes and films which can be used for teaching and learning in English and across the curriculum. From music and history to science and geography, Shakespeare’s work presents exciting opportunities to achieve new creative approaches to learning and teaching.’
