Middle School Digital Aces: Video Production Tips

by Randy Ziegenfuss

This story was submitted by sixth grade teacher, Mr. David Beyer. Mr. Beyer works with Mrs. Barbara Jaindl, Middle School library media teacher, to run the middle school Digital Aces program. Digital Aces is a student technology group that meets regularly during the school day to develop specific student technology skills. Participating students take their new skills and share them with teachers and fellow students back in the classroom.

Recently, Digital Aces learned nine simple things they could do to improve their video production skills. Groups of students created videos to share their new knowledge with their peers in the school. Digital Aces recorded the video tips on different laptops, edited each scene separately, then combined the various segments using QuickTime.
Here are two samples. Each was shot in three parts: a demonstration of the problem, a tip on how to solve it, and an example of implementation of that tip.
