Change the Story - action learning exploring the climate crisis

·       Change the Story is about the voices of children and young people being heard and the compelling stories that they want to tell about their future.

The training will introduce participants to:

·        Lively and engaging teaching materials, case studies of how these have been used by pilot schools and planning tools to develop their own school delivery.

·       Examples of how children at KS2 have explored change in the past, present and future – including the climate crisis – and drawn on these explorations to create their own digital stories.

·       Cross-curricular approaches and opportunities for subject development.  

·       Support to schools in developing a Change the Story approach that works for them, including: planning support; assistance in digital storymaking; helping arrange visiting speakers and experts; making links to the wider international Change the Story project community.

·       Preparation for digital storytelling: collecting resources,  good practice with copyright/e-safety/data protection.

·       Making a good digital story: some general guidance.
