Product Description

Get the best of both worlds with this STEAM Super Day. This super course covers Artificial Intelligence in the Future Focused School and Practical Filmmaking Skills in the Future Focused Classroom.

Dive right into a hands on practical filmmaking workshop. Teachers will collaborate through an array of filmmaking activities covering all aspects of shooting scenes through to editing.

Filmmaking is a highly engaging use of technology in the classroom that actively promotes narrative writing, teamwork, creativity, drama and technical skills. Improves visual literacy for students in a world of increased visual communication media. It gives you transferrable skills that can be used with any recording devices at your school.

Teachers will gain insights and skills to be high quality facilitators of student interaction with Artificial Intelligence technologies using a range of ICT in the classroom including cameras, laptops, algorithms, AI & Machine Learning software and sound equipment. Teachers will learn about and implement advanced neural networks to perform tasks from student created data.

This part of the course allows teachers to become more skilled in 21st Century future focused Artificial Intelligence technology and tools, addressing. Teachers will be able to incorporate AI and machine learning technology into their Digital Technology Syllabus programming.

Audience

This course is fantastic for K-12 teachers who are interested in becoming skilled in 21st Century future focused Artificial Intelligence technology and improving visual literacy with filmmaking.

Walk away with:

  • Booklet supporting the learning.
  • Digital resources supporting course content for implementation in the classroom.
  • Filmmaking digital resources including examples and videos from the session to support implementation in the classroom.

Sessions

3 hours – Practical Filmmaking Skills in the Future Focused Classroom

2 hours – Artificial Intelligence in the Future Focused School

Session 1 – Storytelling for screen

  • Storytelling for screen: Narrative structure unique to screen, Script as text type, Genre, Scaffolding student ideas and screenwriting, student acting.

Session 2 – Shooting Scenes and Editing

  • Shooting Scenes: Green screen for multiple purposes, action shooting in a school setting, framing, camera and sound operation, lighting.
  • Editing: Green screen backgrounds, action sequences, Editing as punctuation, audio, finalizing your product for publishing.

Session 3 – Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

  • Introduction and brief history of AI and its core scientific concepts and mathematics.
  • Detailed explanation of multi layer (Deep Learning) Neural Networks including the mathematics inside each neuron, input layers, hidden layers, output layers. Forward and Back Propagation with optimisation in Deep Learning.

Session 4 – Application on Artificial Intelligence to learning and Autonomous Vehicles

  • Working with examples of teacher created data, applying AI models to learn from the data and then output labels for the data and how this can be applied in the classroom.
  • Current and future applications of AI and their implications for the future of work for students. Reflection on how AI can be implemented into teacher’s programs.
  • Using Autonomous Vehicles we will train computer vision A.I. cars to self drive on a large car track demonstrating the workflow to collect data, train and deploy a cutting edge experimental and highly world changing implementation of A.I.

 

 

Adrian Tyson

Adrian is a fully accredited NSW DoE teacher who has written, produced and directed 5 short films, the last two of which have been selected for and had their world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival. IN 2018 Adrian’s film The Decision competed at the Academy Award qualifying St Kilda Film Festival. Adrian’s films have also been selected for and played at the Sydney Lift Off Film Festival, Palm Springs Shortsfest market and Westside Shorts in Melbourne.
Adrian has taught filmmaking to students since 2012 and is a NSW Creative Kids provider, a voting member of the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts (AACTA) and sponsor of the NSW Dept of Educaiton’s Film By Film Festival program.
Adrian is co-founder, along with Dr. Andrew Kyngdon, of Neuranext Artificial Intelligence. Neuranext’s NESA course if the first Artificial Intelligence course approved by NESA in history. Neuranext teaches computer vision and natural language processing A.I. to doctoral students in Beijing, China, Neuranext has also presented papers at the Global Summit on Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Education in Beijing for two years running. Neuranext has developed a world first education program for primary and secondary students in Artificial Intelligence and is working on projects in security and computer vision.

Adrian hosted two NESA accredited sessions at our school for local teachers. We had a mix of primary and secondary teachers attend a session on film production and Artificial Intelligence. Feedback from attending staff was very positive. Adrian was exceptionally well resourced with practical equipment and tools so teachers could not only understand implementation of the techniques but actually use the equipment for context at their teaching levels. Adrian had the pitch just right for the beginner and enough to get those with questions and more experience questioning how A.I. might make its way into the classroom to support students.
