Students were asked to provide their name, homegroup and the three areas of ICT they are most interested in. The responses covered all areas of the digital world; media, coding, gaming, social media, digital imaging, 3D printing and graphics were just a few.
This database will then be used to identify students to be involved in a range of projects both on and offsite.
The Learning Hub Team have created partnerships with the University of Adelaide Outreach program and Digital Leaders from other schools, such as Urrbrae HS and Wirreanda HS, to provide students with a technology experience outside of their direct environment.
Our first project started Wednesday this week – designing the Learning Hub Media Room. The vision for the Media Room was a state of the art space that provided an opportunity for green screen filming, high quality sound and professional lighting which could be transferred to both iMovie and industry standard software.
The Leaders immediately took over total ownership of the space, planning the green screen and lighting needs. After some internet research and lots of ‘trial and error’ measuring, the team made some recommendations for what the school needed to create a functional space.
Purchases will be made next week and hopefully the equipment will arrive soon, so watch this space!
The Media Room is just one of the exciting projects already planned for the Leaders.
Starting in Week 6, our Digital Leaders interested in sound and filming will be recording a short documentary on the ICT upgrade of our Special Interest Music Centre to share their amazing use of innovative technology.
A group Leaders will also be attending a Digital Citizenship summit at the Adelaide University, collaborating with both Wirreanda and Urrbrae Digital Leaders to create a school resource on Digital Citizenship from the student perspective.
So inspiring to work with these young people passionate about technology and change!
