Mr Foley

This lesson is all about sound. Students see a clip in which a Foley artist explains how she made the sounds of a dinosaur hatching in Jurassic Park, and then they watch an award-winning short film in which a patient wakes up in hospital to find that his life is being soundtracked by two Foley artists and a string quartet. Throughout the lesson, there are lots of opportunities for both sound and non-sound related vocabulary to come up.

Telly Learning at the Image Conference

Thanks to Kieran Donaghy and all the team for organizing a fantastic Image Conference. I’m back in Madrid with things to try out in class and things to think about. I just wish I could have gone to all the talks.

Thanks, too, to everyone who came to my talk.  Click here for the handout.

I hope you and your students enjoy the activities.
