Our school strives to have all students aspire to the highest level and be engaged in their own education. We want our students to have a successful high school experience and be prepared for whatever comes after high school. My classroom, which is a MakerSpace/STEAM Lab, offers students a chance to explore avenues of interest beyond the regular classroom.
"Never tell a person HOW to do something, but WHAT and they will surprise you with their ingenuity".
This is a quote by General George S. Patten and is very true of students. My students surprise me with their creativity, critical thinking and problem solving every day.
The iPad stand will be used by students creating stories using the Green Screen. The SD card will be used in the digital video camera to store students' video until it is transferred to the computer.
Making classes come to life with video is another way students can demonstrate student learning.
It may be untraditional but students can really surprise you with their interpretation of events in history and literature as well as their imagination in storytelling when given the opportunity.
Other students in the class gain knowledge by watching the finished video, maybe participation in the video creation or just watching the other students working on their project.
