My Students

Once upon a time, deep in the heart of The Silicon Valley, a beautiful campus full of happy energetic students used to come to school each day eager to learn in a meaningful learning environment.

Now, with the Coronavirus such a threat to happiness, health, and safety, these kids are being forced to stay at home to learn from a "distance."

The students at my school inspire me to create innovative lessons that will spark their imaginations, add to their life schema, and help prepare them for the world of the 21st century.

Whether it is learning the language, picking up comprehension skills that will enhance the reading experience, solving rigorous math problems, expressing themselves through the arts, experimenting to challenge an idea, or having fun throughout the experience, I am proud to help these students do their best in this new "Live Stream" format era of education.

My Project

I plan to use this fully automated "one-person" mobile production studio as a way to fully engage the students in my class. The studio hub will work as a base of operations that will work in unison with the different cameras set up from different angles of the classroom.

I am excited to be able to "toggle" back and forth between the camera angles to allow the students to see live teaching as well as show close ups of authentic work being modeled on the board in real time.

With your help, the students can feel immersed in the class and engage with each other while staying safe at home.
