General Course Information

With the iPad, you always have your own film studio at hand and can prepare various video scenarios quickly and easily - Hollywood is within your reach. 

Film production in the classroom offers a wide range of opportunities. It allows students to express themselves creatively, promotes media literacy, and strengthens their communication skills. By analyzing films, they develop analytical thinking and improve their presentation skills. In addition, they can implement cross-curricular projects. Film production is a motivating and hands-on way to enhance learning and teach students a wide range of skills. 

With Apple's own apps, you can get impressive results in no time, ready to share with your class or online. We also offer a variety of iPad mounts for quick recording to make the filming experience even easier.
