My Students

My students are involved in EAST (Environmental and Spatial Technology). The EAST model uses technology as a catalyst for collaborative and self-directed learning. EAST is an elective that students can take to be able to change community issues they may see as problems. We try to make sure that all the technology they may need is at their disposal. Students learn many career skills to help them in the future. These include communication, decision-making, and self-driven skills.

Students independently chose the appropriate technology to obtain, analyze, synthesize, and assimilate information.

Instead of being lectured to by a teacher, students take responsibility for their learning, making learning different here.

My Project

Students will be using a high-caliber DSLR camera to capture memories, not only in our school, but at the White County Fair. We have partnered with the fair board in a project to promote the fair. Our students attend the fair with our equipment to take pictures and video of all the events going on during Fair Week. The students then bring their rough products back to work on.

My students are in need of another high-caliber camera and software to edit their photos.

They use the pictures they take and edit to create a video for the White County Fair board. They present this video to one of the board meetings. Through this project, the students are learning photography skills, as well as communication and presentation skills.
