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

Friday, July 8th, 2016 by Jeff Gray, 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…

The University of Kentucky’s Robinson Scholars Program for first-generation college bound high school students serves 29 counties of eastern Kentucky. Applicants are selected based on factors such as enrollment in the pre-college curriculum, academic achievement, participation in community service, extracurricular activities, personal enrichment, and need for financial aid.

Those high school students chosen for the Robinson Leaders Program become eligible to participate in enrichment activities that emphasize academic preparation for college and that develop students’ social, career, and leadership skills. Activities and services for students in the leadership program include:

  • Career and College Coaching
  • ACT Prep Workshops
  • Leadership, Career, & Academic Workshops
  • Summer Academic Enrichment Camps
  • Financial Aid Workshops
  • College Visits
  • Community Service Opportunities
  • Financial Assistance for the ACT & AP Exams
  • Eligibility for the Robinson Scholarship

As part of their Summer Academic Enrichment Camp, 20 students from the program attended a workshop in Basic Video Production for iPads at KET’s Media Lab, Lexington, on 6/27/16. KET’s Jeff Gray, along with the group’s instructors and counselors, Phillip Barnett, Tyler Wells, John Mays, and Savannah Hummel — current UK students and former Robinson Scholars Program participants — helped the students make PSA (public service announcement) video projects describing and promoting the Robinson Scholars Program. Their efforts are now posted online at the KET School Video Project website.

Here’s a good example of one of the video projects made entirely with an Apple iPad and iRig microphone.

And here’s a slideshow of the UK Robinson Scholars Program students making their video projects…

Powell County Schools Explore iOS Video at KET Media Lab

Wednesday, December 16th, 2015 by Jeff Gray, KET

DSC_0008aVicky Brown and Jennifer Francis, along with colleagues Kristin Richardson and Connie Nobles from Bowen Elementary, Powell County, brought students to KET’s Media Lab in December for a workshop in iPad Video Production.

These students already make school video projects using traditional camcorders and pcs for editing. Their teachers wanted them to explore using Apple iPads to make complete video productions within the device using the built-in camera and the iMovie editing app. iPads and similar portable devices by other manufacturers represent quite a savings to educators in equipment cost, teaching time, and class project development time.

Here are some pictures of the Bowen Elementary students exploring the iPad for video production. During the workshop they learned the basics of using the iPad camera; capturing good video and audio segments; arranging segments in the iMovie app’s editing timeline; changing segment properties such as length and audio volume; adding text titles; using built-in title/music templates; recording audio into the timeline, and more.
