Over the span just a few short years, video production has moved from a highly technical medium (analog) to a mainstream medium of expression by which the public not only consumes information,but also produces. Video production projects are designed to help HUHS students become thoughtful producers who are conscious of the messages they send through this powerful medium. All students have the opportunity to learn basic editing skills through projects in Health 9. Additional practice and mastery of these skills is accomplished through both classwide and individual activities. This guide provides students with access to important concepts, basic support tools, and personallearning tutorials.
“You are now defined by what you create, share, and allow others to mash-up.” ~ John Seely Brown
- Authoring in multiple mediums generates stronger, multi-layered messages.
- Reading across multiple modes (that is, visual+auditory) allows for better comprehension, faster comprehension, and deeper understanding.
Public Service Announcement
Students in Health 9 use images and taglines to create 30 second public service announcements for inclusion in classroom presentations. The videos serve to help classmates recall important messages while offering producers an opportunity to learn basic movie planning and editing skills.
Students in Mr. Geracie's English 9 class is experimenting with the production of book trailers, book promotional previews similar to movie trailers. Students use literary analysis and movie editing skills to produce trailers that portray the tone and mood of various book titles.
