In this episode of Action! Teacher Video teacher Patrick O'Neill, from Gallions Primary School in London, presents his video Etching the DLR.
O'Neill talks about the aims of the project and how both teachers and pupils engaged in a new creative process under the guidance of a professional artist.
The video shows how pupils responded to the challenge and gained in self-confidence as well as developing their creative skills. It is part of a unique showcase of videos made by pupils about their own learning.
O'Neill joins presenter Xanthe Steen in the studio, alongside education consultant Adrienne Jones and teacher Nick Cannon, to discuss the project.
They talk about the key issues of a creative curriculum, building self-esteem and confidence. They also consider the wider implications of using video for recording, assessment and CPD.
