Stuff that needs to get done, but isn't glamorous or fun.

And here comes the book fair.

Testing out the set up for #WRAD15 Skype sessions. The book fair will be in the media center lab for the next two weeks.

Love the comments between these sixth graders doing research for their "Make Your Case" project.

The Solon Education Foundation has been an amazing supporter of SCSD Media Services over the last 12 years and this year was no exception. I'm putting together a little tribute/thank you and today I enlisted the creativity of a couple elementary school classes. 

We used the iPad Makayama Ipad holder and the tripod purchased with this year's grant. Unfortunately, the iPad storage topped off 20 seconds into our Hyperlapse, but we finished it off with my iPhone and spliced the two videos together in iMovie. 

The students had so much fun and it is so cute!

For this project, students selected technology themed backgrounds. We then used the  iPad Makayama Ipad holder, tripod and green screen to create these cool images! I love them.
