About The Event

            BUILDING LIFE SKILLS THROUGH FILM MAKING

We need to teach our children filmmaking, not to graduate filmmakers, but to graduate problem solvers, critical thinkers and passionate people who can work with others to make that which does not yet exist, real.”  Nikos Theodosakis

 

Filmmaking has a transformative effect, especially on children. Studies indicate that students involved with art forms such as filmmaking do better in academics and life in general, and this experience seems to be crucial to a student's overall success.

The Filmmaking  process encourages meaningful, content-rich, student-driven learning.  It fosters  awareness and passion, and that passion fuels action. It gives students a chance to ask questions of subjects, and at the same time, to answer questions for themselves.

Learning outcomes developed in the filmmaking process -- problem solving, critical thinking, collaboration, and pitching -- benefit children in many other aspects of life. 

 

About The Event

 

 

Experts in Experiential Education believe we are producing a generation of ‘cotton wool kids’, who are missing out on experiences that help to raise their self-esteem, give them confidence and increase motivation.

 Current research suggests that by not allowing young people to engage in independent mobility and environmental learning, we are  denying them the opportunity to develop the skills and resilience that they need to be able to be safe and manage complex environments. There are also indications that such restrictions have long-term implications for young people’s future development, health and well-being.

 Outdoor Learning helps young people to develop the ability to cope with and experience a wide variety of challenges. It requires them to make informed choices and to understand and take responsibility for the consequences. It leads to a positive ‘can-do’ attitude.

 

PEDAGOGY

The Zest Lab has been designed and developed by various experts in experiential and outdoor education( including life-skills and the arts) at the Gap Year University. The curriculum follows a unique, innovative and scientific pedagogry  that’s not just effective but also challenging and fun.

 The workshops will be facilitated by a team of expert trainers and facilitators who are passionate about education and arts, and have avid experience in facilitating experiential and art based learning.  

 Each module will be handled by a team of two, a facilitator and a cognitive behavioral psychologist. While the facilitator engages the participants, the psychologist monitors the participation and shares the assessment with the participants. as feedback in the debrief sessions.

 “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.” – Pablo Picasso.
