The Classroom Display Course
Update: the next course starts January 2013
The course is ideal for anyone who wants to know more about designing effective classroom displays. There are usually a mix of teachers and teaching assistants, both primary and secondary, from the UK and elsewhere on the course.
We will cover all the basic topics to help you become more confident about making displays in your classroom.
The course content for each week is:
An introduction to the Classroom Displays Group on Flickr and other sites you might find useful.
Week 1 – why we have displays and starting to look at displays as learning objects. A video about why we make displays. Tasks relating to this subject
Week 2 – design guidelines and related slide show & design tasks.
Week 3 – the use of colour in displays and mounting work for display, a slide show with examples of displays & tasks
Week 4 – choosing lettering and fonts for displays, a slide show with examples of displays & tasks
Week 5 – interactive displays, a slide show with examples of displays & tasks
Week 6 – adding 3d elements to displays, slide show with examples & tasks
The lessons will be on a password protected private site where you can also leave comments, ask questions etc. I also give feedback on completed tasks.
