Video Production in the Arts

(Prerequisites: CLIA and Arts Assessment Institute I Classroom Assessment)

This course uses an inquiry-based approach to help teachers integrate video production and media literacy into the classroom. Participants will work to plan, shoot, and edit video, with an emphasis on designing units of study for the visual and performing arts classroom. The institute will stress the importance of group work in video production and provide strategies for creating production teams with students. In addition approaches and materials for expanding students’ critical viewing proficiency will be shared. The 2010 South Carolina Academic Standards for Media Arts will be emphasized and strategies for their integration with the dance, music, theatre, and visual arts standards will be explored. No previous video experience needed. All materials will be provided, including a video camera, tripod, Apple computer, and iMovie editing software that will become the property of each participant’s school upon completion of the institute.

Participants will:

  • Discover methods to engage your students as critical thinkers about media arts,
  • Learn how to design and implement a video-based unit of study with students,
  • Practice writing narration and incorporating music, graphics and photos into a video,
  • Design a unit of study with a completed video example and assessment strategy that you plan to implement with your students
