DARE chop batik 2[1]Researchers from the DARE team, John Potter and Theo Bryer, have won a bid to research and evaluate "Shoot Smart", a film-making project using Tablet devices, during the summer term, 2014.

Shoot Smart is funded by Into Film, the film education charity and involves working alongside partners, Xube Ltd, a film-making company specialising in films in educational settings. The competition for funding was substantial with 42 bids submitted and only 4 projects funded. It will take place throughout the summer term with children in year 5 and year 8 working in after-school clubs and using iPads to shoot and edit short films.  John will work with the primary age groups and Theo will work with the secondary students, observing weekly workshops and working on an evaluation and research framework which will provide evidence of good practice with Tablet devices which Into Film hopes can become a resource for film-making in schools and after-school clubs across the UK.
