Teaching in the igeneration can be a challenging prospect, with teachers often feeling as though they’re competing against multiple screens for their students attention. But rather than working against technology, why not work with it? School 21 does just that. An innovative 21st century pioneering school based in Stratford, School 21 takes a much more practical, project based approach to your usual state curriculum to ‘rebalance pupil’s heads’ and educate pupils with ‘work that has real value beyond the classroom’.
After a smash hit summer of high flying tech conferences, giant doughnut cakes and festivals galore, we were delighted to share our collective event production experience when approached by Year 9 teacher, George Duoblys. The School 21 curriculum requires each year group to present a project at the school’s annual exhibition show. Year 9’s hefty task was to produce an immersive cinema experience based on the Marvel franchise, in 8 weeks. This is where form teacher George Duoblys asked the Marble LDN team to step in, to share our collective expertise and inspire the group.
Sharpen those pencils kiddos.
Jumping at the opportunity, we sent 4 of the very best of the Marble workforce back to school. Representing event planning, production, design and technical management, our aim was to talk through the makings of a successful event.
