Rob Smith

After a successful career as a primary school teacher, Rob Smith created The Literacy Shed and has been delivering engaging, practical and entertaining CPD in the UK and abroad since 2012. Rob works closely with schools and delivers high impact conferences in order to raise standards in reading and writing through the use of film and still image.

During the sessions Rob explores a wealth of moving images which range from short films, film trailers, and adverts to documentaries, animations and extracts from Hollywood blockbusters. Rob will show how to teach techniques such as portraying character emotion, building tension and creating atmosphere - a range of tools that they can take back to school and use immediately to create original English units or to weave into existing units in order to enhance them further.
