My Students

My students are excited to use their gifts and talents to become well-rounded 21st Century leaders. They are eager to develop new skills that will help them in their future college and career pursuits.

These students are the future leaders of a global society and will benefit from using a variety of literacy and technological resources to expand their knowledge and allow them to express their ideas in creative ways.

Please help them receive the support they need to maximize their academic experience and creative potential.

My Project

My students will use the ipad to assist in the production of iMovies and other multimedia products that will be used across different subject areas.

The iPad will help students create quality multimedia productions that tell about who they are, what they've learned, and what they care about.

The work they put into their productions expose the depths of their creativity and desire to put forth a great product.

My students use iMovie, green screen, stop motion, and other technology apps to create a variety of culminating digital products that show and share what they have learned in innovative ways.

Students are learning to create quality multimedia productions to share with the rest of the world. They write meaningful plays and scripts that address issues that are important to them then bring them to life via iMovie and other technology.

They are learning to identify the intended audience and create a product that is both entertaining and informative. It is amazing to see my students collaborate on a project from script writing to end of the movie credits.
