Video Days

It seems like the kids have been doing a lot of video stuff, pretty much every week, and it’s pretty cool. The book club is working with videos for their book projects, and on alternating weeks, they also have a video club with CATV. The beauty of both these clubs is that all kids can take part, including N and a few other kids his age. They don’t necessarily read the books, but they can contribute and have fun with it, and that’s all that matters.

In addition to all this, A is doing the after school video club, which is mainly school kids, and she is enjoying that. She gets a huge kick out of creating movies and videos, which entails writing a script, acting and filming, and then editing. It’s really cool that they all get to oversee the process, with minimal adult interference.

It’s nice to find something that the kids enjoy that involves cutting edge technology and creativity, a combination that is not always easy to find.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to MarkBTomlinson for the pic.
