Larry Moore Leaves KET a Better Place, Students Better Prepared

Thursday, July 30th, 2015 by Jeff Gray, KET

DSC_0303a KET Education Consultant Larry Moore has retired. For many years Larry was very involved in promoting student multimedia production through school and
KET Media Lab workshops, and in the development of many related teacher resources. I and many others at KET and in schools around Kentucky will miss his expertise and enthusiasm, his inquisitive and friendly nature, his eagerness to help, and his wry humor.DSC_0245a
These are pictures from a video production workshop Larry gave at the
KET Media Lab, Lexington, for Westridge Elementary and Bondurant Middle schools, Franklin County. You can see why Larry’s always been one of KET’s most appreciated consultants working in Kentucky schools. His work with students has helped them to be better equipped to produce effective and expressive classroom projects, and his insightful work with us at KET has been encouraging and fun.
Here are some appreciative testimonials from teachers who brought students to the KET Media Lab for workshops by Larry in video production and related titles…
Larry was experienced enough to inspire us to want to design electronic field trips — an STLP project for next year!
Larry worked with our group at the level we needed. He was helpful in reviewing new information as he presented it. Good handouts also.
All of it was fantastic. I really appreciated the preparation and correspondence with Larry prior to our visit. Getting to know us helped truly personalize our workshop to suit our needs.
It was very useful. Plus it was super awesome for Larry to come in on his day off to share his expertise!
I felt that my time was well spent and the information I learned will be utilized in my work. I know the students enjoyed the instruction time and I did as well. Thanks for a great class!

Mt. Sterling Elementary Students Explore iPad Greenscreen

Friday, May 29th, 2015 by Jeff Gray, KET

Teacher Jana Elliott, along with Collis Robinson (3rd grade teacher), and Vance Jouett (parent), brought students from Mount Sterling Elementary to KET for a Media Lab workshop in Greenscreen Effects for iPad Video
Using the Greenscreen by DoInk app for iOS, these students demonstrated how easy it is to use greenscreen effects to make videos for classroom projects, in this case a report on the history of pirates!
Here’s a clip from the greenscreen video they made. Notice that the greenscreen background had been replaced by a picture of a sailing ship to make a new background to match the student’s report subject. And the hat was a hit. Greenscreen effects for video are great tools to aid students’ imaginations in helping them use multimedia tools and resources for classroom projects. To schedule a KET Media Lab workshop in Greenscreen Effects for iPads or one of our other titles, contact Jeff Gray, KET, at; 859-258-7263.
