This talk demonstrates how educators can homerun any aspect of their subject areas using scenes from popular cinema.Key insights drawn from both film theory and attention studies will explain how teachers can select, introduce, play, pause, and analyze scenes to enrich and reinforce the ideas and concepts they teach to their students.
