EDUCATION & NEW MEDIA: Film

April 26th, 2010 by susan


I was happily surprised to not only see my great-niece Zoee since she’s in a Navy family so I don’t get to see her and her brother and sister growing up but exciting to see that she’s, at fifteen and likely a junior, doing film projects for school. (She’s the shortest one–which cracked me up since that’s from our side of the family!)

I really like the fact that new media is being made available as courses in the high schools; this evidently was “Intro to Film and Video, and Zoee along with three friends produced this as a class project back in January. Particularly at the high school level–and probably earlier as well–and with kids so savvy now about technology, such courses are fun as well as necessary entry points into the college and career field of choices.

Hooray for this Tennessee high school!
