My Students

My students are very diverse, but one thing they all have in common is the will to learn and grow. They see the world differently from what we do as adults. These views have helped me connect the world to them and allow them to learn more as well. Times have changed, and we, as educators, have to consider their views. My students believe in having a voice and are willing to let everyone know what they feel and see.

My Project

In this project we are encouraging the students to write, direct, act and edit their own film in which they can express their creativity. Their imagination is their only limitation, they love films and now it is time for them to make their own master piece.

Film is just a great medium to express yourself and a great environment to work around.

The items for this project includes the DJI Osmo camera that can capture amazing stabilized video, two U-Grips with LED light and microphone set in where they will use their own cell phone or classroom camera to record the videos they wish to capture. The two Lapel microphone to record all dialogue in their film. Video editing software will be used to finalize all footage necessary to complete the final project.

Students in this project will learn valuable skills for example, team work, story telling, editing skills, audio communication, Decisiveness, Problem Solving, and many more.
