Additional Resources for the Media Classroom

My students need 2 additional video cameras to create multimedia projects for media production class

My Students

My media production students received two amazing cameras from generous donors through Donor's Choose. The students love the new cameras and have already begun new video projects. My class size however is twenty students and we would love to have two more cameras to place in students' hands.

I teach a number of digital media technology classes with mixed groups of students from 9th through 12th grade, from a wide variety of socioeconomic backgrounds.

The majority of the students are inner city kids from low income families who take my class as an elective because they are interested in learning about multimedia. The school is a small city public school in upstate New York housing about 1300 students. Due to budget issues, there are very little funds for new technology.

My Project

Our students have the software they need to edit video. Now they need the tools to create videos. Currently students are learning to edit video using stock or pre-made video clips. Putting digital cameras in their hands will give students the opportunity to learn camera technique, experience current technologies that are being used in the digital world, and discover the many aspects of the world of video first hand. Having the ability to capture their ideas on video will unleash their imaginations allowing them to make their own creative video stories become a reality. Just think of the new levels of learning taking place as they turn their ideas into something real and tangible.

Your donations will allow students to learn how much fun making their own videos can be.

Students will no longer be restricted to video clips made by someone else. They will have opportunities to learn producing, directing, camera technique, interviewing, journalism, broadcast news, script writing editing, narrating and even acting. This will open a whole new skill set that reaches into many core subject areas.
