The most exciting part (for students and for Ms. Langman) was that they utilized the libraries green screen area to film their scripts. Equipped with an iPad, lavaliere microphones, and the green screen itself, Ms. Langman recorded students presenting their newscasts. the iPad is loaded with green screen apps that allow students to change backgrounds and have over-the-shoulder insets during their newscast.
The students really enjoyed this project and it's great to see learning and creativity in the library! More than books, magazines, and newspapers, the library should be (and hopefully will become better at begin) a place for students to innovate, create, and collaborate to learn about themselves and the world around them.
