West Rutland Projects for Night of Shining Stars

Written by Eric Bird

We officially began some large technology projects for a parent night that is fast approaching.

Two classes chose to do detailed podcasts, having their students work in groups to create creative, curriculum-based recordings with multiple tracks and sound effects. Much like Mettawee, I discover that there is a huge difference between the fun and fast classroom podcast project lead by me and a detail-oriented small-group student project. We have fun, but remain busy the entire time.

The third teacher has fully embraced the new technology presented to her school, and has visions of creating a novel-based movie project that will require the students to use Flips, podcasting recording, and a movie maker program. I was impressed, but I know the time and effort involved in a project like this, so I was quick to get moving. We started with video footage of the students as characters from the book.
