Forrester High School and Exam Technique

Forrester HSOn Thursday I went out to visit Forrester High School on the west side of Edinburgh.  I enjoyed 8 years working at Forrester, initially as a computing teacher, but also for 5 years as head of department and ICT coordinator for the school.  I left in December 2000 to set up Learning Curve, so it was great to get the chance to go back and catch up with a few ex-colleagues.

The reason for my visit was to involve the school in a new project we are working on.  The Learning Pod: Learning will be a collection of 14 short films and animations designed to help young people understand the principals of learning.  The first film in the series, Study Skills, has already been completed.

The film in which Forrester are going to be involved is called Exam Technique and it tells the story of Laura, a 16 year old pupil.  The short drama, set on the day Laura's first exam, will give good practice and advice in relation to preparing for and sitting an exam.

Auditions will be later this month, with filming to take place on location at the school in June.
