10 Jan Politics & Society promotional video
Politics and Society is a new Leaving Certificate subject that has been piloted in 41 schools to be examined for the first time in 2018. From September 2018 onwards the subject will be rolled out to a wider cohort of schools.
Politics and Society is an important deliverable in the Department of Education’s contribution to Education for Sustainable Development. The subject aims to develop the learner’s capacity to engage in reflective and active citizenship, informed by insights and skills gained through the study of social and political sciences.
The Learning Rooms worked with PDST Technology in Education to script and develop an explainer video to promote the new subject to schools, teachers and prospective students. The explainer video was developed using a combination of animation and an interview with one of the teachers who ran the pilot course.
