Student Engagement Through Video Production

Congratulations to Mrs. Kristen Sergent & Mr. Jeff Cochran for receiving a KySTE Grant!  This grant will provide students with opportunities to create projects using 21st Century Learning Skills. The grant will cover the cost of 2 iMacs, multiple iPads with protective cases, and 2 Padcaster Studios, totaling over $9000. The Padcaster Studios are complete kits that include iPads, tripods, teleprompters, microphones, lens, and green screens. These items will be used to create authentic learning experiences that will promote competence in digital literacy. Students will use the equipment to create audio and video projects using platforms such as GarageBand and iMovie on the iMacs and iPads. In addition to classroom projects, the equipment will be used in the future to create a news broadcast for Johnson County Middle School.
