Learning through screens

Watching a movie is not only fun, but it can also serve as a useful and effective teaching tool. Alan Turing and Stephen Hawking are two very important and popular scientists, whose lives and work have served as inspiration to script writers and directors to create films and documentaries.  Two film days were set for students to watch “The Imitation Game” and “The Theory of Everything”. A follow-up discussion was held in class to test students’ understanding and of course allow them to share opinions, comment and ask relevant questions.
