Cinema Didactic for the Development of Teacher and Students Skills!

Narrative cinema is an educational and communicational tool almost essential in today’s school, both as a visual art and as a means to pass and learn through emotions. The cinema narration has a great training value for young generation and succeeds in profoundly affecting the emotional sphere of the youth, training them to decentralize and to develop empathy, stimulating the imagination and knowledge of other worlds, developing divergent thinking.

They intend to use cinema as an educational tool in European schools, carrying out training, discussion and exchange activities among schools, students and teachers, launching a discussion on the topic and activating an eTwinning group that allows all interested parties to find points for reflection and useful tools to create a European community that can collaborate in the development of new projects on the subject of cinema and school education.


The objectives of the CIAK project are:

– to promote the active participation of teachers in the experimentation of teaching through the cinema and audiovisuals use

– to recognize and promote the skills of teachers who will collaborate in identifying, drafting, using materials and tools in the eTwinning group in order to increase the use of this platform

– to encourage the socialization of teachers’ work, in a synchronic and diachronic sense, opening the way to a collaborative relationship with other teachers coming from different European countries and allowing an overall growth of teaching reflection of the audiovisual and cinema subject at school

– to facilitate the participants (teachers and students) in the experimentation of a collaborative school teaching that gives the teacher the role of facilitator in a research where students are considered the protagonists

– to support the planning and definition of the criteria for the dissemination and settlement of educational activities to be carried out through the use of the audiovisuals in the curricular programming of the partner institutions
