The students who attend our Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) program are technological wizards who thirst for mystery and adventure. Be it learning to code via simple apps, or programing robots for competitions, they love to see what makes something tick! They are growing up alongside the technologies that permeate our modern society, and love teetering on keen edge of progress. Our ELO group is an amalgamation of students from a Hawaiian immersion program (a program that focuses more on traditional Hawaiian knowledge and practices) and an english program. Unfortunately, some of us have been inadvertently side-lined as our interests donʻt particularly fall in line with traditional Hawaiian standards.
Our Extended Learning Opportunity (ELO) program seeks to prove that just because our interests donʻt fall in line with Hawaiian tradition does not mean that we cannot/will not do our very best to help enrich and perpetuate our culture, and that there are no "outcasts"; weʻre all in this together!
It is the goal of our ELO program to explore multiple technological creative platforms via which we intend to increase the relativity of, and exposure to, Hawaiian language and culture so we can move forward...together!
These materials will give the students hands-on experience in hardware/software installation and application. Each session will revolve around a different part of the PC (and/or peripheral), its purpose, and its application(s) in regards to data storage/transfer, video/audio capture, encoding/rendering, streaming, and gaming. The students will be taught how to install all hardware and software, and will do so themselves.
Our goal is to give the students an entrepreneurial advantage early on in their educational careers.
The video/audio group will create and edit a vlog about our lessons and projects, assisted by the digital art & photography group. The streaming group will equip their workstation with a camera and microphone (and required streaming software), and will assist the vlog crew in uploading/streaming their videos. Groups will accomplish these feats using the PC workstation(s) that they build. Although tasked with different responsibilities, we will work as a group to produce a stream/vlog presented in the medium of Hawaiian language.
