Educational values through short films.

Films have always been an amusement activity related to the leisure time. Using short films is a great opportunity to refresh this media and use it as a way of education.

Education in values is understood as a process in which people introduce ethical standards to their habitual learning. This is an activity that can take place in any organization using formal or informal teaching in different subjects.

Cinema’s brought to the big screen so many films and short films about different issues related with educational values.

Through 30 short films inside the program “Burgos creciendo en valores”, we invite all the students to reflect about friendship, charity, work as a team, respectful, tolerance and diversity.

Below you will find some of the films with their synopsis.
