An eager and lively group of intermediate-to-high school students from Metcalfe County visited KET for a Media Lab workshop in iPads for Video Production and a tour of KET’s multimedia production center. All had participated in a local district video project to feature their schools and were rewarded by a trip to KET in Lexington.
See the Metcalfe County Schools Community Education web page for a look at the collected student-produced videos from the Metcalfe County Film Festival.
Here are three short videos made by the student group during their 1.5-hour introductory workshop to video production using iPads. The first video is an iMovie “trailer” example. The other two use built-in iMovie themed templates for graphics and music. Metcalfe County’s student and teacher group learned basic iPad video recording and iMovie editing quickly. Everyone had fun and they plan to make more student video projects with their school iPads back home.
