Product Type modules
Marketing Text The A.C.T. curriculum, which explores the Administrative, Creative and Technical roles involved in film-making, provides tutors and youth workers with a step-by-step roadmap to support innovation in education for youth-at-risk by harnessing the potential of digital media production to develop key transversal competences of youth at risk, whilst also supporting their re-integration to formal education and their personal progression and continued engagement as valued members of society.
A suite of embedded-learning and enquiry-based learning resources for the development of key competences has been developed by project partners. This suite includes at least one new learning resource for each of the following key competence areas:
(a) social and civic competence;
(b) cultural awareness and expression;
(e) critical thinking
It also includes a modified version of the media production courseware to support the development of digital competence.
Target group This curriculum and learning resources are targeted for youth workers and second chance education providers to be used with their groups of youth-at-risk and early school leavers.
Result As a youth worker or tutor working within DLQ, they had a unique opportunity to adapt group activities and lessons to suit individual needs. Engaged as trainee film crews, the youth involved, particularly those who have had a negative experience of mainstream education, were trained in the key competences of social and civic competence, and cultural awareness and expression through the use of embedded learning techniques: and in literacy, numeracy and critical thinking through the use of enquiry-based learning techniques.
Area of application The ACT Curriculum has been delivered to over 80 youth-at-risk and early school leavers across the 4 acting partner countries and has been instrumental in allowing youth workers to test the DLQ approach to second chance education, and in allowing film crews to produce 4 hours each and film and TV programmes which are now broadcasting on DLQ TV, an online TV station linked to the project website.
