Digital Documentaries by Fabulous Fourth Graders

My students need equipment to help us create a portable movie studio. This iPad Mini, green screen, and light set will help our students create videos as part of their extended reading projects.

My Students

I am greeted by 25 smiling, eager-to-learn faces every day. I am blessed to teach in a small community in Western North Carolina where my students love to collaborate, learn about the world around them, and create new ways to solve real-world problems.

Although the students in my classroom are faced with many obstacles, they continue to strive to be the best learners they can be.

As their teacher, I want to help encourage them to maintain their love of learning and overcome the obstacles they face.

My Project

Mrs. Quinto's project "Brought to You By: Project Based Broadcasting" inspired me to create this project so that our students will have more opportunities to create videos using new technology and portable green screens. Like Mrs. Quinto, my colleagues and I strive to provide opportunities for our students to transform their learning through student-driven, student-centered projects.

Our students' eyes light up when they use green screen technology to make videos for their extended reading projects.

We currently have a green screen wall in our Media Center, but we'd like to add two portable green screen fabric walls so that more groups can use the green screen while creating their videos. I am also requesting an iPad Mini, an iPad case, and an iPad tripod so that students can use these to create videos with the green screen fabric. Professional lights will help our students create better videos. A portable table top portrait studio will be used by students to create videos using small props.

We'd like to add this new equipment so that our students will have more time to use the green screen technology.

Thank you so much for your help in making our dreams come true!
