In addition to our year-round invitation to share student-produced videos on all subjects at KET's School Video Project website, the KET School Video Project Challenge — Arts!, is an opportunity to integrate multimedia technology while supporting the Kentucky Arts and Humanities Curriculum Documents for fun project-based learning. It is also s a chance to win a greenscreen and light kit for making more great student projects!

Student Arts Video Examples from the KET School Video Project

Put Down That Text Video Still Texting While Driving Still Pay Attention Stay Alive Video Still

Tim Withers, Art and Video teacher at Wayne County High School, has submitted many student-produced videos to the KET School Video Project. We were impressed by Tim's integration of Arts and Video class projects. He presented the "Making Costumes and Props for Video Productions" session at the 2012 KET Multimedia PD Days event. Below, he's shown holding a student-made Roman helmet fabricated from paper using the Pepakura pc program. The folded and glued-together paper cutouts are then covered with a resin to make them hard enough to wear. Various swords and other armor objects made mostly from foam cut from patterns and glued together are shown in the center photo. KET's Brett Smith is shown on the right sporting the Roman helmet. Here's an example student video by Wayne County Hight School showing costumes made for their production of Arthur and the Red Wizard.

Kentucky Center Academy for Integration of the Arts, Social Studies and Creative Writing: During the summer of 2014, forty-five teachers from across Kentucky attended a week-long academy on infusing arts into field trips. Sponsored by the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts, it was a collaboration with the Kentucky Department of Education, Kentucky Educational Television, and the Kentucky Historical Society. Lesson plans developed during the academy will available to teachers online through the Continuous Instructional Improvement Technology System (CIITS). Read coverage of the event by Brenna Kelly of The Kentucky Teacher. From the article, "Specifically the teachers learned how to use a historic site as a focused research opportunity, an inspiration for fiction or poetry, how to use drama to make a place, painting or artifact come alive, and how to read a historic portrait."

Check out the children's version of the documentary video on the Kentucky Governor's Mansion by Michael Breeding Media. Made with Kentucky students to celebrate the mansion's centennial, it's hosted on PBS Learning Media, which is locally administered by KET Education staff who contribute Kentucky resources. Make your own classroom multimedia project by combining student research, writing, performance, and video with greenscreen effects to record your students as famous Kentuckians and events from the past!

National Core Arts Standards — Dance, Media Arts, Music, Theatre, and Visual Arts

Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts - Education and Community Arts resources

Kentucky's Core Academic Standards for Technology integrates the Arts into curriculum at all school levels. Arts projects can be shared among teachers and subjects to provide collaborative project-based learning activities across the curriculum. Student video production can be used both as a creative project and as a way to document other art projects and events.

National Technology Standards for students from ISTE — several standards elements and goals are also common in student art education and production, especially when multimedia is used.
