Lobby-Observer Online High School Newspaper

Three years ago our high school newspaper went online. We successfully combined writing journalism with photojournalism and broadcast journalism. Student Editors maintain their own blogs on the site and there is a weekly newscast. We have found that online format has allowed for timely publishing and more creativity.

A 21st Century Walk in the Woods: Using Leafsnap a Digital Field Guide

Students in the horticultural program have been using the digital field guide Leafsnap, complete with visual recognition software, to help identify leaves, flowers, and trees on school grounds and the nature reserve that surrounds the school campus.  Students become producers of digital content by adding to the biodiversity database that is part of this free mobile app developed by researchers at Columbia University, University of Maryland, and the Smithsonian. Students will demonstrate how to use Leafsnap and share pictures from their walks.

Virtual Book Club - A Purely Digital Experience

Students worked collaboratively to write music and song lyrics for a PSA. They created a script and shot the video using a DSLR camera. Their videos are engaging, fun and winning awards. What makes this project successful is the fluid classroom approach. Students can work in the music room using instruments and Logic to create and record songs or work in the TV Studio editing bays depending on their needs for that day. There is not a lot of instruction. There is a lot of freedom and support. We have created a safe environment for both success and failure and this allows for a truly collaborative and creative experience.
