My Students

Our world is changing drastically with the increase in technology. My students live in an environment of high media and constant information. They are exposed to it but do not have a real understanding of where it comes from or how it works.

My students live in a middle class area.

Most homes have computers and digital cameras. Most parents have smart phones and many students have cell phones themselves. There is a lot of access to technology but not a lot of instruction of its capabilities.

My Project

I would like to challenge my students to use the video camera to document the world around them. I want them to learn how to use video editing programs. Projects that ask the kids to go video activities at recess and then edit them on the computer can create any exciting experience that allow the students to tell stories in a different manner while showing them the affects of video editing. Projects such as video taping Back to School Night and posting it to my web site for parents to view will allow the students to recognize how information gets on the web and that really anyone can do it.

My students need a broader understanding of how things can be modified.

What is real and what is digitally created? With access to so much technology students must be able to recognize what is real and what is not. They must also learn how to check the creditability of the information.
