Cambridge School Classics Project: ‘Animating the Ancient World’

CSCP have some exciting news! We are partnering with the team at the Panoply Vase Animation Project to help bring the worlds of mythology and animation to the classroom. Panoply are soon to release five brand new animations made for the Our Mythical Childhood project, through the Universities of Roehampton and Warsaw. Each animation has a different theme relating to Greek mythology, and each will be accompanied by teaching materials and activity plans, along with short documentaries setting the vases in their historical context.

Launch Event

To celebrate the launch, we are hosting a free online CPD event on Saturday, 24th April, 2021. This event will be a chance for academics and teachers of classical subjects at any level (and teachers of other disciplines) to learn more about the project, the animations and the teaching resources. This event will focus on the UK classroom, but we welcome interest from teachers all over the world.

There will be a range of short sessions on offer, including:

  • A preview of the new animations
  • Guidance on the use of visual sources for classics teaching
  • Tips on how the resources fit into the curriculum
  • Feedback from our pioneer teachers on using the animations in the classroom

Further information is available here.
