Eastside Technical Center – Engaging Multimedia Instruction

Thursday, January 10th, 2013 by Jeff Gray, KET

Eastside Technical Center of Lexington, Fayette County Schools, has a new set of multimedia production classes and a new teacher: Ms. Michelle Rauch, an enthusiastic leader experienced in multimedia production, having worked for several years in local television.

Students who attend Ms. Rauch’s classes are from Fayette and the surrounding Jessamine and Woodford school districts. Here are some students working on creating and editing music for multimedia projects.

Student projects include a periodic news magazine program that’s shown over the school network, PSAs (public service announcements), and various other special projects, such as this example on student gender issues, People are People, No Matter What, which was also uploaded for sharing to the KET School Video Project website.

Michelle Rauch will be at KET next July 9 and 10 to present at the next KET Multimedia Professional Development Days event on how she and her students are using their new portable a/v production switcher, the NewTek Tricaster pictured above). She’ll be joined by Tim Withers, Wayne County High School Art/Multimedia teacher, who will present on his class’ use of another useful and exciting portable a/v production switcher, the Edirol VR-5. We hope many Kentucky teachers and staff will again join us for the event. Details and registration information will be available at the project website later this spring.
