Lights! Camera! Wait...Where's the Camera?

My students need an iPad and cover to create and edit high quality videos.

My Students

My students spend their time capturing the world around them. Help them make the most of their experience!

My students are hardworking, technologically-minded individuals who have a passion for Broadcast Journalism.

They live in a rural area, and deserve every exposure to the world outside of their small town. Bringing high quality technology to this program can allow them to make the most of the class.

My Project

My students need an iPad and cover to create and edit high quality videos. iPads, while not professional studio cameras, allow students to record high quality video and edit in the same device. This makes it more convenient and expedient to interact with video and editing techniques. The more my students can interact with these video editing concepts, the more prepared they will be for professions in the Broadcast Journalism industry.

A donation to this project will allow my students to gain more experience with video creation and editing.

Through this experience, you, as a donor, will be fueling students' passion to pursue careers in the Broadcast Journalism field.
