Wanstead is a mixed comprehensive in east London with specialist status in performing arts. The school has a strong ethos in creativity. The English department were keen to get involved with the project as several of the teachers share experience and interest in media and film studies. There are strong links with the school’s own media department and pupils are often taught using multimodal texts in other subjects. The Multilingual Digital Storytelling Project offers a fantastic opportunity for pupils to create, develop and improve their ideas, whilst reflecting on their own work and providing feedback for others. The project has so far enhanced pupils awareness and understanding when reading film and images. They have also learnt new skills using a range of media technology.
