Digital Video Pilot Project – Vancouver Island

The Saanich Indian School board on Vancouver island has created a pilot project to incorporate technology into the learning process. This includes something near and dear to my heart, the production of digital videos.

The program is geared towards students in grade 12 and has several goals, including

    working with a First Nations topic,
    being involved with the community,
    having community value, including use in social studies classes from grade 4 to 9,
    receive credit for technology courses

    An example of a film is archived at:

Sorry, I didn’t set it up as an html link. It works if you copy/paste it into the address bar of your browser.
