In this blog post, we’re looking at Anomaly Film and the work we will be carrying out over the next couple of weeks. Our approach has changed, we’ve come up with a new solution which aims to improve film studies in schools and introduce a new digital alternative. Creating film is very popular with a lot of our schools. Anomaly Film offers a complete film kit for schools. Anomaly Film is a film kit which embraces the use of green screen technology. Over the next couple of weeks we’re revamping our support material in addition to creating a brand new website. Anomaly Film YouTube channel  changing anomaly film Over the summer we’ve been looking at some of the challenges that face schools when using digital technology in schools. Over the summer we’ve created a number of videos for our schools to enjoy. These videos are all tutorials which should help schools make the most out of their digital technology. You can expect to see these videos at the back end of August, just before schools go back. From that point, videos will roll out monthly. In addition to these videos, we’re always happy to help with any problems or queries you may have about the Anomaly system so please do not hesitate to give us a call. Anomaly Film website We revamped our current Anomaly Film website at the end of the last year after we had established that schools needed to know more about the service. Our website aimed to inform schools all about the Anomaly Film service in addition to showcasing the achievements of our hundreds of schools who have opted for the service. A couple months down the line and we realised we needed a revamp of our platform to better showcase the work that our wonderful schools have done. We’re aiming to have the website ready and waiting for schools just before everyone goes back for September.

Anomaly are improving schools with the use of YouTube. In this blog post, we explore some exciting developments at Anomaly as we re-launch our YouTube channel. After uploading videos for a couple of months now, we thought it would be better to take a look at the Anomaly YouTube channel and make a few changes. In this blog post, learn more about what’s to come for schools in the UK and the Anomaly YouTube channel. What’s changing? After taking a look at our existing network, we’ve been putting a lot of time and effort into improving the channel we already have. Listening to schools and the feedback we receive is something we take very seriously at Anomaly and with this feedback we have devised a 12 month plan for our YouTube which aims to make the life of schools easier with the use of video tutorials. We understand the voice of all of our schools, some videos that we’ve planned aim to make you a complete expert with Anomaly Film kit. In addition to the full time support that we already offer we have created tutorials for not only the editing side of things, but also the practical aspect, planning, technique and much more. We’d like to give you a sneak preview of our first video which should be live later this month. Our first video will go in detail on how to put up a green screen in addition to how to pack away a green screen. Having collected feedback from our schools this seems to be one thing that can be tricky for teachers and students. If you’d like to take a look at our videos already on our YouTube channel you can do so by looking at the video below, the videos aim to improve schools: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H4iLe3DvQqE If you would like to incorporate any Anomaly technology into your school, or find out more about our vast range of services in the education sector please do not hesitate to call us on 0844 579 0880 or alternatively you can email us on the usual address info@anomalygroup.co.uk Twitter | Facebook

Teaching Primary school pupils about religion and helping them to develop a deep understanding can be quite a challenge. To tackle this, St Winefride’s Catholic Primary School in Bradford have made use of green screen technology to interview their parish Priest, Fr. Paul and created short film which can be broadcast to the whole school using their Anomaly Screen in the playground. Saint Winefride’s on Vimeo. Using green screen to tackle topics which most pupils find hard to engage with can help to improve their knowledge and understanding, but most importantly increase their retention of information. By broadcasting this video on their Anomaly Screen, they are also able to reiterate the school’s religious beliefs and values to the whole school community, including parents and visitors. Non-faith schools could use this idea as part of the new OFSTED requirement for all primary schools to teach children about fundamental British Values. One strand of this new initiative covers understanding other faiths and cultures which make up Great Britain. To see more videos created by St. Winefride’s Catholic Primary School, head over to their website or Vimeo.

One of our schools, Wold Academy, demonstrated their digital media success using our green screen products by showcasing their knowledge of History. The year 5 pupils from Wold Academy, Hull showed that our portable filming studio can be incorporated into all areas of the curriculum regardless of the subject with their captivating news reports set in Anglo-Saxon times. https://youtu.be/p8VHobT8108 Using green screen filming techniques, the pupils of Wold Academy are able to bring to life what they have learnt about the Battle of Hastings using digital active learning methods which are proven to improve classroom engagement and knowledge retention. It looks like the pupils really enjoyed this project and unbeknownst to them, they have also been brushing up on their literacy skills by writing and reading their own scripts! Their enthusiasm speaks volumes and we think you’ll agree that this wouldn’t be case if they were asked to read a book about the Anglo-Saxons! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0s97Watjxi4&feature=youtu.be Wold Academy are constantly pushing the boundaries of learning throughout the entire school so to see more of their fantastic work head over to their website or for regular updates and news visit their blog.
