Mrs. Vestal from Columbia Falls MT is requesting Computers & Tablets through DonorsChoose, the #1 classroom funding site for teachers.

Adding Extras to Digital Video

My students need a digital data recorder and a microphone; they also need Film Clipboards for editing and some SD cards for previous purchased camera storage.

My Students

I teach in rural Montana. While our classroom doesn't have many human neighbors, our neighbors are designated by the peaks of Columbia Mountain and the majestic Glacier National Park along with lakes and rivers. Many of my students love the Flathead Valley. Unlike our neighboring communities our CFHS has students with less economic means and often students who miss out on technological opportunities.

CFHS students want to create and innovate, we only need to help them explore their paths.

Too often students have experienced the back country of the Bob Marshall, but they haven't yet explored the possibilities of their intellect. It is my goal as an educator to help carve these pathways and work to be a guide to the top of student peaks- whether that peak is applying to college or looking for a summer job. Students here have a passion for education when they have a mentor to establish their goals.

My Project

This project was already funded from previous donors. These requested materials, such as Film Clipboards to denote the editing process along with a microphone and SD cards will enhance technological quality for the film project and more importantly, improve on the student experience. Additionally, students will add the data digital recorder to improve capturing audio for upcoming projects, such as gathering historical data.

Students are hoping to set the tone for future students to carry on the culture of film at the high school.

From previous donations, students have already created a silent film for an International Film Fest along with helping younger students study and experiment with film at the Junior High and High School levels.
