Digital Learning Associates has been nominated for a Learning on Screen Award.
The Learning on Screen Awards are the UK’s only celebration of film and media in education and research. DLA's nomination is within the Archive category for a short piece called Memory, which we created in partnership with ITN Productions Education. The video was created using authentic material from Granada Television's groundbreaking Up series, which began its unique run in 1964 with the original Seven Up film.
The series has followed a group of 14 young people throughout their lives, starting when they were seven year-old schoolchildren. The series continues to be produced regularly. The most recent instalment, 56 Up, aired in 2012 and production is due to begin on the next series in late 2018.
DLA remastered the series to meet learning goals for an ELT publishing client, levelling the material with bespoke narration and a carefully constructed selection of moments from the show's extensive archive. The final asset runs at a little over three minutes and will be entering classrooms as part of our client's wider series later this year.
The Learning on Screen Awards take place this Thursday 26 April, at BFI Southbank in London. You can read more about the Awards and see the full list of nominees here.
