'Reflecting through Film'

About the project

During this project Thinking Space worked intensively with a group of disengaged year 10 students. The project asked: ‘What’s the point of school?’ ‘What is good learning?’ and ‘How do we make it happen?’ To get a grip on these questions, the students were given a range of exciting and unexpected enquiry-based learning experiences including shelter building, music making, studio photography, improvisation, theatre making and forensic investigation.

Every moment was documented by a film maker and the resulting footage was used for an intensive week of philosophical reflection with Amber, returning again to the questions that had prompted the enquiry.

The student’s challenge was to articulate their vision of good learning by designing and delivering a learning experience for year seven; a daunting prospect for some of them but a real achievement for those who managed it and an experience they’re unlikely to forget.
