Learning through Video

My students need 2 cameras to do projects in the Spanish class.

My Students

Children are not receptive to talking in front of the class; even though it is a skill necessary for the future. By incorporating a video camera into the classroom, students become engaged and motivated to learn. These videos will show what they have learned in class and they will be able to see their growth in the language.

We are a high school in North Carolina.

Our school consists of 85% African American children, 12% Hispanic and 3% other races. I will have 75 students in my Spanish classroom each semester. I am committed to incorporating technology in my classroom. My students will benefit from this video camera, as they will be able to see their progress in Spanish as we move through the semester. It is amazing to see children who will not talk at all in class but will do it in front of a camera. This will enable my students to use technology to create original presentations to show what they have learned and how they have grown in their language.

My Project

With this video camera, my students will break barriers, not only to speak Spanish, but we could also make videos about characters or write a screen play and record it. We could record student speeches to analyze them later or create a music video for songs written about the content we are learning. I am also working on "flipping" my classroom, which means I make videos about what I am teaching and the students can watch them at home.

The world is changing fast, and students need a wide variety of experiences to better prepare them for the future.

By funding this project, you are investing in future filmmakers, podcast producers, documentary creators, or music video directors. Students who may have never realized they have an interest or talent in film design without your help! You will also help them break the barriers of public speaking which, in this era, is a necessity. You will also make their Spanish leaning more fun.
