Each child in my classroom absolutely loves learning, although the method and environment in which they learn best vary greatly. We incorporate a variety of learning strategies, group work, and alternative seating and learning options to ensure that each student's needs are met, right where they are! Digital News and Media allows students complete a variety of projects ranging from a Wick News broadcast done via You Tube, a school blog done via Weebly, create original podcasts, videos, and commercials. In addition, to these assignments, the students also create the school yearbook.
The students in this class are responsible, motivated and determined students who want to do what is best for their school.
They are always looking for new articles to write, videos to create, and trying to advance their knowledge in the world of digital news. They are truly an incredible group, and I am so lucky and thankful to have a new group of learners that are excited and ready to learn each year!
The articles my students write, the pictures my students take, the videos, commercials, and podcasts my students create all have real world applications. They are using school as a way to broaden their horizons, learn new information, and share this information with their school and community.
The materials we are asking for will help my students publish their projects and share information to the community.
Having an extra camcorder and case will allow multiple groups to shoot their video at one time. By having an additional mac computer students can use garage band and final cut pro to edit their videos and create podcasts. These programs are standard with Mac computers. Having an additional Mac computer lets multiple groups edit their videos or record their podcasts at the same time and completing the work in a timely manner.
