Films by Young People Remind Us That Diversity Does Not Mean Division
It has been a true privilege to be part of this year’s ClickView and ATOM 1-Minute Film Competition. The moving image is an incredibly powerful way to create meaning and the young-people who participated in this year’s competition demonstrate why. This year’s theme of Diversity feels incredibly timely. There is a real sensation that our planet is becoming increasingly fractured by intolerance and fear of difference be it racial, cultural, social or political.

Challenge for video learning The biggest road block to showing videos to a class, whether it is a kindergarten or year 12 class, is maintaining student engagement. It can’t be monitored, it wastes valuable class time and it is difficult to prevent. We recognised this as a challenge for our schools worldwide and have come up with a solution. Introducing interactive videos ClickView Interactive Videos come with built-in questions and additional resources. Whilst watching students will be presented with questions about the video content and are encouraged to answer them before continuing, making them a valuable…
