Cynthia Warner, KET Education Consultant for SE KY, demonstrates video technique.

Glenn Baker, Owsley County Public School’s Community Education Director, brought students from the Appalachian Student Voice Team to Lexington for a visit to KET. Cynthia Warner, Education Consultant for Southeast Kentucky, gave a workshop in Basic Video Production to the attentive group. Following the workshop, the students ate pizza in the KET Visitor Center and then took a tour of KET’s multimedia production and broadcast facility.

School districts represented by students and teachers during the Appalachian Student Voice Team’s visit to KET included Owsley County (Glenn Baker); Lee County (Pam Cornelius); Bath County (Kelly Wilson); Estill County (Teresa Dawes); and Wolfe County (Wendy Pelfrey).

We look forward to seeing multimedia projects from the eager and enthusiastic Appalachian Student Voice Team.

Debbie Kiser’s JME Summer Students Excel at KET Media Lab

Friday, July 8th, 2016 by Brian Spellman, KET

DSC_01891aDebbie Kiser, Library Media Specialist at Julius Marks Elementary, is well-known in the Fayette County Schools and beyond for her consistent enthusiasm and support of students who adore her, year after year. I blogged in 2011 about a visit to her excellent school video production, JME-TV. She’s also known for homemade fudge, which she’s dispensed for years like a fairy godmother to the delight of children and fortunate adults (I got some today, yay). Today, Ms. Kiser brought several summer school program students to the KET Media Lab for a workshop in video editing using iPads…


Here’s one of the groups’ videos, all made with iPads: My KET Experience. More examples of JME video projects are at the KET’s School Video Project website.
