Taking Documentary Filming to the GoPro Level

My students need a GoPro Hero3 camera and an Otterbox Defender Cover for the iPad Mini.

My Students

A typical day in my classroom includes students collaborating on projects that show their understanding of the historic contributions that were made in the past.

My students are a great group of young people who are willing to try new things.

They look forward to coming to school to learn and are excited to see what they can create on a day to day basis. We use a variety of technology to help students understand how the past has impacted the present.

My Project

With the GoPro Camera our students would be able to create documentary style movies that show how they use the technology to enhance their learning on a daily basis. The Otterbox Defender case will be used to protect the iPad mini that they are going to use to create the edited final version of their documentary films.

By helping us fund this project you will be opening a world of options to my students.

The GoPro Camera and Otterbox Defender Case will help these students understand the benefits of having this technology as well as giving them life experience using this technology and these filming techniques.
