Digital creativity


Photo courtesy

Photography is a fun, varied and educational activity. But unfortunately, photography is often considered a serious business. It doesn't have to be that way! In the photo jokes workshop, you will learn that photography can also contain a lot of humour. In a simple way, the functions of a photo camera/tablet are explained. The positioning of the participants seems to create an optical illusion. The photographer's point of view can also influence a photographed image.

In this workshop, students are divided into small groups. One photo camera is available per group. The photographer places the children in a certain way. Using the environment and themselves, the children will stage funny pictures. Good estimation of space and depth is very important for this. A well-known photo joke is someone who appears to be pushing the tower of Pisa over. Afterwards, the pupils look at the results on a digiboard.

Key objectives
Students learn to use animated film to communicate. This allows them to translate topics as they perceive them through a digital tool. They gain some knowledge and appreciation of aspects of storytelling. They also acquire animation film skills and techniques in an exploratory phase. In addition, they learn to deal with new media, such as tablets and iPads. Pupils learn to look differently at their surroundings, as well as improving their sensory perceptions.
