Education

Investment into the Next Frontier

At Activate, we create industry-leading filmmaking and augmented reality programs for the education sector. 

Our aim is to develop critical thinking skills and discerning media consumers and producers for the next generation. 

Based on the demands and requirements of the Australian Curriculum, our programs have been developed with an integration of real-world techniques and industry relevant information. 

We believe in investing in both teachers from a professional development perspective, and students via in-school programs, workshops, after-school programs and community level interaction.

 


REINVENTING EDUCATION WITH FILMMAKING

We create unique and highly engaging experiences for young minds. Using quick, easy and fun content creation as a base, educational institutions can layer any subject area they wish to regenerate. From science to religion education, Activate can help increase engagement in the classroom like never before. Check out some of our past projects below.

    Drawing on the imagination of a carefully selected group of students from YR 2 - 6, with the help of Activate’s team, students reimagined what is possible with making a school promotional video. Using the magic of stop-motion and live-action, students wrote and recorded their scripts and combined the two to produce a very innovative school promotional video.
