YFA Online Learning is a moving image resource for education practitioners.
It contains footage from the Yorkshire Film Archive collection, along with catalogue descriptions, contextual information and suggested activities.
YFA Online Learning is an interactive site and we hope education practitioners will use the information and activities provided, but also download and use the films creatively, adding your own uses and activities onto the site for others to share.
The films featured on the site have been selected with the National Curriculum in mind and cover a range of material to introduce educators and learners to the creative use of archive film. You will find a wide spectrum of historical, geographical, social and cultural content, and new films and activities will be added on a regular basis.
Films have been selected to reflect the broad variety of material in the YFA collection to introduce users to the wealth of footage held within archives. The films date from the 1890s to the present covering a range of gauges such as 35mm, 16mm, 8mm, 9.5mm and video formats. The resource includes a number of different styles and forms such as documentary, short fiction films, animation, ‘amateur’ films, actualities and travelogues, and a range of topics such as industry, leisure and holidays, family life, education, transport, urban and rural life and wartime in the region.
If you have a specific request for footage not currently available via YFA Online Learning then please contact the Archive and we will discuss the possibility of including this material on the site in future.
By registering and creating your own log in, you will also be able to download the films so that you can pre-plan activities and be creative in using the material by, for example, including in PowerPoint presentations, adding soundtracks or editing the footage to create new films.
