From the website:
“CAMPUS is designed specifically with educators in mind, offering easier access and better resources, to support over 2,500 Canadian productions, in both English and French, including 500 new titles added just for classroom use. It features new search functions: by subject, and soon, by age group. CAMPUS also enables educators to prepare clips in advance online―selecting excerpts, labeling them and adding comments and questions―while chapters and playlists make it easier than ever to present media in class.
The NFB has worked with teachers to develop resource descriptions and discussion starters that allow teachers to determine at a glance whether a film is a good fit for their classes. It’s also currently working with educators across Canada to develop additional study guides, online learning modules, educational playlists, virtual classroom experiences and more, to ensure CAMPUS is an outstanding resource for Canadian students.”
The NFB has a travelling road show offering workshops across Canada for educators:
February 1–3: Charlottetown and Moncton
February 9–15: Edmonton and Calgary
February 20–25: Winnipeg and Flin Flon
February 27–March 6: Whitehorse and Dawson City
March 8–15: Regina and Saskatoon
With more workshops to come.
