If you choose a digital workshop with Grimm & Co, the session will take place entirely over Zoom (digital communication platform).
Here is our offer to your school:
Prior to the workshop – In a digital workshop, the Grimm & Co facilitators will not be in the classroom and as such, we will need your help to co-facilitate at certain points. We ask for a thirty-minute meeting, approximately one week before the workshop, to talk through the structure of the session.
The day of the workshop – We can deliver a digital Storymaking session in any classroom space, however you will require an interactive whiteboard and access to wifi, as well as a Zoom account (see appendix on ‘How to setup Zoom for a Grimm & Co workshop’).
After the workshop – Gather together the pupils’ Storymaking endings, photocopy them, and post the originals to:
Graham and Grizelda Grimm
The Emporium of Stories – Grimm & Co
Once Grimm & Co receive the pupils’ endings, we will publish every single one and deliver them back to your school approximately two weeks after receiving them. The children and young people will see that they have become published authors.
What is the class teacher’s role during a digital Grimm & Co workshop?
Storymaking sessions are delivered by Grimm & Co’s session leaders, with support from the class teacher during the digital workshop. This is simply because, without an external microphone, it can be difficult to hear the
The Grimm & Co approach is friendly and informal, which means that we like it when a class gets excitable and enthusiastic about their ideas! The session leaders are trained in behaviour management and are comfortable dealing with this when required. However, we realise we are not in the classroom during a digital session and if there are any difficulties or incidents, we would welcome your additional support.
You’re welcome to take photos during the session – and please feel free to Tweet / Facebook / Instagram us!
