Study day Interactive Media (at your own location)
This study day offers a short introduction to our teacher training course, in which we link together culture and technology and introduce visual language, media wisdom, digital literacy and 21st century skills to the classroom in a natural, playful and creative manner. We examine how you can use new and interactive media, technology and visual language, through a brief introduction but mainly by exploring, researching and discovering together.

Guided tour Cinekid MediaLab
The Cinekid MediaLab (held in October at the Westergasfabriek in Amsterdam) explores the intersecting field of art, new media, technology and visual culture. It aims to provide a platform for better media content for children, and to encourage an active and creative attitude in children. Developing a personal taste and a critical attitude to media helps to strengthen children’s position, and MediaLab’s digital productions and installations appeal to their inherent learning ability through play and intuition. Children are also actively involved in the production and construction of media, technology and visual culture. The MediaLab seeks to balance physical interaction, sense of wonder, creating, tinkering and building, analogue versus high-tech, talent development, conceptual installations and projects geared to professional practice.

Visit the Cinekid Festival with the whole teaching staff (from 18 to 26 October 2018) for an inspirational guided tour, tailored to your interest.

Costs: from €100 per guided tour. Offered in Dutch and English.
