Pedagogical suitcases

Teachers trainings
HAMACA Educates' activities in the institutes count with a training program in experimental video for teachers of the audiovisual culture subject: it proposes a brief route through the recent audiovisual history, it presents a general vision of the key elements of cinematographic language (photography, editing, sound, etc...) and it analyses the main topics of current artistic production (the use of irony, political claims, audiovisual collage...) through the main pieces of HAMACA's archive. 

Pedagogical suitcases 
The pedagogical suitcases are work material for classes of 3rd and 4th grade of secondary school and high school.

SUITCASE 1
FRAGMENTS OF HISTORY; THE RECOVERED MEMORY 

SUBJECTS: HISTORY OF THE CONTEMPORARY WORLD, citizenship education and human rights; visual and plastic art education; social sciences, geography and history; audiovisual culture. 

How is the official history constructed from the "winner"'s perspective and how could we preserve the memory of the anonymous? The approach of this section is to analyse how experimental video, documentary and videoart treat the main historical issues of the twentieth century through the audiovisual language. 

SUITCASE 2

SUBJECTS: SOCIAL SCIENCES, GEOGRAPHY AND HISTORY; economy, philosophy and citizenship education; education on civic ethics; visual and plastic art education; audiovisual culture. 

Can video creation be a tool of denounce of the forms of power of the current economic system? Through elements such as irony, language games, relation between image and sound, etc., some key issues of our contemporaneity are questioned and current discourses of mainstream media are analysed from a critical point of view. 

SUITCASE 3
THE VIDEOCREATION: A WALK THROUGH THE MAIN FORMATS AND GENRES OF THE CREATIVE LANGUAGE

SUBJECTS: AUDIOVISUAL CULTURE; visual and plastic art education; citizenship education and human rights; ethical and civic education; social sciences, geography and history. Which are the main formats, genres and techniques of contemporary audiovisual culture?

Workshop of dynamization of the Suitcase in classrooms

The workshop consists of a screening of one of the videos accompanied by an expert that approximates the language of video to the students and a final activity that foments creative and expressive competences of the students.
