It has been a few days since the last update. Students have been busy filming their animations and videos since then. It has been fun to see students develop a vision for what they want to do and then act on it. Along the way we have done some peer critiques and used that feedback to push ideas further. Here are some images of the process so far.
I was a little nervous about jumping into video production so early in the school year, but now that we are completing the process, I think it has been a wonderful way to begin our creative journey. By collaborating with STEM, students that I would not normally meet until January get to spend time with me now. 7th and 8th graders have been able to mix grade levels and use their different perspectives to work through ideas and come up with new and inventive solutions. And, overall, students have been able to hold themselves up to a production schedule that will help us in each and ever project we work on throughout the school year.
