Fourth-grade students make space-related videos in research, technology project
Bellefonte Elementary School fourth-grade students have teamed up on a collaborative project to create outer-space newscasts. Students researched a space-related topic, created a script and then filmed and edited their videos, filming in front of a green screen purchased for the school by the PTO. For students Elizabeth Stack and classmate Eli Rushton (see photo, right), they joined forces to report on black holes. The two added that they also feel more like legitimate reporters when using microphones. Once the videos are filmed, elementary technology teacher Julie Henry said students will learn how to edit the videos, add music and transitions, and turn their broadcast into reality with a creative background using software called WeVideo.
