All 700 WJH students will receive the GreenScreen DoInk ‘app’ on their school-issued iPads. And they’ll have access to movie making in a new Maker Space in the Media Center, complete with Green Screen, microphones, tripods and teleprompter. This media equipment, used with iMovie, leverages the students’ already keen interest in visual medium.
Students can make innovative movies for school projects or just for fun. They can experiment, create, and communicate their ideas, collaborate and share. WJH enjoys a strong culture of utilizing media – Fantastic Friday videos, movie making classes, and a HEF funded movie making cart – and this Maker Space builds on this excitement to offer a permanent creative outlet.
