Barb Anderson and Sara Cavitt (l-r), of Junction City Elementary in Danville, brought their broadcasting club students to the KET Media Lab for a workshop in Using iPads for Video Production and a tour. Using camcorders or iPads to record video, they usually edit their student news productions with the iMovie program on an Apple Mac pc. At KET, they explored using an iPad as a complete production tool for both recording and editing using its built-in camera and the iMovie app.

Here are some examples of student-produced videos that demonstrate quick and clever group work in story planning, recording, and editing including background music application, text generation, use of still pictures and recorded audio, and more from the 5th graders’ work in the 1.5-hour workshop (mouse-over image for navigation arrows, swipe on portables):

Junction City’s students were a lively and creative group. We look forward to seeing more of their video production work soon. If you have a school group of public, private, or homeschool students you’d like to bring to KET for a free workshop in multimedia production and a tour, please call or email Jeff Gray at 800-432-0951 ext 7263; 859-258-7263; jgray@ket.org.

KET Education Consultants Brian Spellman, Amy Grant, Larry Moore, and Helen Morrison traveled to Murray State University on July 15-17 to present at the Department of Education’s Developing Standards-Based Digital Content for Next Generation Learning professional development program (year 2). The event was coordinated for area K-12 teacher professional development by Dr. Yuejin Xu and Dr. George Patmor.

MSU’s educator participants in the program were a very enthusiastic and creative group. KET’s education consultants delivered day-long multimedia workshops in stop-motion animation and basic video production for the classroom. KET ‘s Jeff Gray also joined the group to help give a workshop on using iPads and iPhones for school video production.

KATE (The Kentucky Academy of Technology Education) is also based at Murray State. Director Ron Milliner, Patti Oakley, and others at KATE produce useful education resources from their offices at MSU, including recent training for Kentucky educators in using the newly statewide-implemented Microsoft Office 365 software suite of tools.

Kentucky schools can contact their regional KET education consultant for free in-school workshops in using many KET multimedia resources. For Kentucky schools and public service organizations within driving distance of KET’s Network Center in Lexington, KET also offers free workshops in multimedia production and related topics in its KET Media Lab. Schedule a workshop for students or teachers, along with a tour of KET’s broadcast production facility, by contacting Jeff Gray, KET Education Division, at jgray@ket.org; 800-432-0951 ext. 7263; 859-258-7263.

Bloomfield Middle’s Video Fast Forward

Tuesday, June 4th, 2013 by Jeff Gray, KET

About an hour southwest of Lexington, Nelson County’s Bloomfield Middle School is a good example of effective application of multimedia technology. School Library Media Specialist, Susie Pozgay, who also serves as the School Technology Coordinator, does a fine job of supporting students and teachers by providing opportunities for students to participate in video production. Susie uses available equipment and software effectively, all the while keeping abreast of developments and planning to integrate new tools. Support from Principal Jim Beavers helps move it all forward. Principal Beavers quickly impressed us as an administrator who clearly has his faculty and students’ welfare foremost in mind. He’s aware that multimedia tools and resources can be used in many ways for student project-based learning, and it was a pleasure for me and for KET education consultant Larry Moore to hear of his interest and enthusiastic support for how Ms. Pozgay and others of his staff use multimedia resources in their teaching.

I met Susie Pozgay at a KYSTE (KY Society for Education Technology) annual conference in Louisville recently, where we discussed school video production and resources. Not long after, she brought her school news team students to KET for a free video production workshop in our KET Media Lab at the KET Network Center in Lexington, presented by KET’s Larry Moore. We like to share what schools are doing in multimedia production so we decided to visit Bloomfield Middle to see for themselves.

Currently, Susie coordinates the production of a daily morning news show that originates from the school library and is shared with classrooms over the school’s Channel-One tv system. Channel-One installed a lot of video distribution systems and tvs for free in schools across Kentucky a few years back, with the stipulation that during the day students would watch the Channel-One news program that includes advertisements for products aimed at student consumption. In addition to free tvs and distribution equipment, many schools quickly saw the opportunity to use the a/v inputs of the Channel-One a/v distribution box – usually located in the school library or a/v distribution equipment room – for distributing school-produced video productions over the system by attaching a camera’s a/v outputs to the Channel One box.

Students involved in the Bloomfield Middle morning news program cover all of the basic tv-production jobs including writing and editing, presenting, camera, audio, switching, set design, and more. PowerPoint slides are created and edited by students serve two purposes: 1., They’re used as teleprompter text for the news “anchors” as they read the announcements for the day and share special notes and feature stories; 2., the PowerPoint slides are then set to display repeatedly over the the school’s tv-system channel to tvs in rooms around the school. Students edit the PowerPoints at pcs, also accessible over the school pc wired and wifi networks –Ms. Pozgay showed us how she can access the PowerPoints for editing from an iPad and its Splashtop remote pc connection app.

Susie hopes to soon add a second video camera, an a/v switcher, and other gear for two-camera productions, and is planning more video projects for students to take part in.

Down the hall, science teacher Jennifer Logsdon introduced us to some of her students who made a video illustrating their “Rube Goldberg” do-it-yourself-from-found-parts project they designed to throw a switch. Making the video was part of the project and we saw it projected from the connected Apple iPod they shot and edited the video with.

Ms. Kim Goff, language arts teacher, has also included video production as a multimedia resource in a public service announcement project on student bullying, which was recorded and edited on an iPad.

Larry Moore and I were very impressed with Bloomfield Middle School’s use of video production and other multimedia resources as tools for student projects. We look forward to seeing more from them soon.
