Interview With Mrs. Uselman, Former Librarian at TVES

Students in Broadcast conducted an interview with our former librarian, Ami Uselman, on Leadership Day. The students collaborated on Google Drive, formulated their questions, and shared them with Mrs. Uselman, along with an invitation to interview her.

On Leadership Day, Mrs. Uselman arrived and the camera crew set up her interview. Two students asked questions, while one video taped it. 

Once complete, the students used Coral Movie Studio to edit and produce the video. Once editing was finished, they produced the final video, uploaded it to the school's YouTube account and shared with everyone!

Famous Quotes and QR Codes!

Students in Mrs. Timson's third grade class have been researching famous African Americans. Included in their research was a famous quote by that person.

Using Vocaroo, an online audio recording site, students recorded themselves, reading the quote. They saved the recording URL,  and uploaded the URL to a QR code generator. Students then pasted the QR code into a Google Doc, which they printed. Parents enjoyed launching the QR code and hearing their children's voices! It was a fun experience.
