Peter B. Kaufman | Visual Education and the University of the Air
Since the dawn of the moving image, filmmakers and educators have exchanged hopes and dreams about the power of the medium to improve society and help create a better world.
Filmmaker and educator Peter B. Kaufman reviews some of these early dreams and explores whether the time and technology may have arrived at last to realize some of them. Key to the success of any vision, new or old: the curation and maintenance of moving image archives, which is at the heart of EUscreen’s mission.

Elsa Coupard & Claude Mussou | Curating History with French Audiovisual Archives
This session will present Jalons (Milestones), an online service aimed at the educational community, created by Ina in partnership with the French Ministry of Education.
Ina (Institut national de l’audiovisuel) was created in 1975. It is one of the world's largest broadcast archives, with collections spanning over 60 years for TV and 80 years for radio. As many documents in these collections take part in the narrative of history in the last century and onward, they are indispensable for education and training.
Elsa has been editorial coordinator at Ina Hypermedia Studio since 2006. Former teacher of history and geography, she is now responsible for the educational website Jalons/Milestones. She previously graduated in History and Cinema from the University of Provence.
Claude for most of her career has been working at the French Audiovisual Institute (Ina). Recently in charge of a newly created web archiving activity, she is now head of InaTEQUE, the department which fosters and promotes academic usage of Ina's collections.
Steven Stegers | Moving Images in History Education
What can be done to make better and more use of audio-visual collections in education?
The teaching of film literacy is an “uncommon and sporadic practice”. This was the answer of 62% of the 6,701 teachers who participated in a European-wide survey. Only 5% teachers answered it is a “widespread and common practice”. Why is the teaching of film literacy not more widespread? Especially since having access to equipment is no longer a barrier and film and television have a major impact on the way young people see and understand the world. This session tries to see why moving images are not used more and what can be done. It will do so by looking into current practices, presenting potential use cases, and identifying learning objectives that can only be reached by using moving images.
