Lights, Camera, Education!

Discovery Education also announced that it has reached an exclusive agreement with the American Film Institute (AFI) to distribute a new video series produced by AFI, called “Lights, Camera, Education!,” via Discovery’s unitedstreaming service and other outlets. The series profiles actual teachers and students as they incorporate the techniques and collaborative process of filmmaking into the study of traditional academic subjects. “Lights, Camera, Education!” is an online application of the professional development workshop series for AFI’s K-12 Screen Education program. Teachers who use the AFI Screen Education process in their classrooms have students write, shoot, edit, and show original films as part of their studies.
