Help German students create a production company

by British Council

Summary

Empower 11th grade students at Schloss Neubeuern secondary school to work together to transform learning school-wide and create a more engaging curriculum catering to student preference and learning styles. The students will achieve this by creating a company, together with their teachers, to produce learning videos for their own school and curriculum, with long-term goal of making them available to other schools and teachers.

Challenge

The production of suitable content is one of the major challenges in engaging our students in IT curriculum. In evaluating the project with our 9th grade students we have realized two crucial things: students very strongly favor videos produced in-house over videos from external sources and students very often find it easier to follow the explanations of a fellow student than those of a teacher. We are consequently now trying to bring those two things together.

Solution

A group of our 11th grade students together with their teacher have now founded a company which produces learning videos for their own school and has the long-term goal of producing videos for other schools and teachers. The students produce from scripts they receive from their teachers and also write their own scripts. As in any company there will be a business plan and a budget, decisions will be made by the management (the students) supported and advised by the supervisory board (teachers).

Long-Term Impact

Once success markers have been measured, this idea can be replicated in other schools across the world. There is a very low threshold of investment to "copy" the idea, which we will actively promote - in the media and during our annual conferences on digital learning at Schloss Neubeuern.
