This EdLab vlog is on Nicholas Laskowski, the former technology assistant/production assistant for the video production team. Nick was an invaluable asset to the team, frequently staying long hours to perfect a shoot or setup and install new equipment and software. He'll be missed!
Meet Chandler Kang (!). This is video is part of the desk series videos experiment, an ongoing project to capture the projects and personalities in the EdLab.
Gus and I recently finished the "Yell and Sell" project at Brooklyn International High School. Overall, it was an incredibly positive and productive experience. Chris (the media teacher) summed it up well when reflecting with the students: "You did a lot of work in short amount of time with something that was a completely new process for you." All told, Gus and I visited Chris' class five times--about a week of classes--and the students were able to deliver some pretty terrific content in that period of time. As a part of the case study, I hope these four videos show the process of using the Media Show as a viable and motivating platform for teaching and learning media production. Thanks for watching!
In March of this year the New York Times launched their Times Cast video series, a daily look at the inner-workings of the Times. They use it as a way to look at the news stories of the day.
My idea is to do something similar with the EdLab, but to do it weekly. So here is my take. Let me know what you think. Its a work in progress. Is it interesting? Is it confusing? I know the audio leaves a lot to be desired. Is this something you would watch on a weekly basis?
