My Students

My students come from a variety of different backgrounds but they all have one thing in a common; a thirst for knowledge. My students push themselves every day in my digital media class.

These students work hard everyday to learn how to create digital media projects such as short films and photo stories.

Each student has their own unique ideas that will allow them to demonstrate their creativity.

Many of my students have goals to go to top colleges along with many who do not even know if they want to attend college. With these projects we complete in my classroom it is my goal to possibly pique an interest and get my students interested and excited about digital media.

My Project

Teaching a digital media class is already difficult. Students are challenged with learning how to master skills of photography and videography. It becomes even more difficult when there are not enough cameras to go around.

By funding this project my students will have access to cameras so that they can practice and master the skills needed to use equipment properly.

Students will be able to use a camera to its full capability and not just simply push a button to take a photo. They will be able to understand the different settings on a camera and be able to use them correctly. In a digitally dominated world, the class will acquire basic photography, and video production skills that will be beneficial in their near future.
