Transcript

  • 1. HSVPA and Pubsoft Panel Proposal for SXSW 2014 Self-publishing in grades 9-12
  • 2. From a young age we teach our kids that they should aspire to soar…
  • 3. But the world they live in is changing at a rapid pace.
  • 4. As educators it is our responsibility to prepare them for the world they will have to live in
  • 5. Part of that responsibility is to equip them with the right tools and skills to enable them to reach their destinations.
  • 6. When creativity and arts are often disregarded, HSPVA nourishes creativity
  • 7. At the Houston School for the Visual and Performing Arts (HSPVA), a magnet school based in Houston that serves students who wish to pursue creative educations, we endeavored to establish our own publishing operation for the creative writing program.
  • 8. The program would teach the students about new advance production and distribution in a worl of rapidly changing creative content and technology industry challenging the publishing status qu
  • 9. The program would allow students to produce, publish, distribute, and sell their own works all through the school’s publishing operation.
  • 10. Doing so would provide students with the following skills: • The ability to produce and bring a creative product to market • The resourcefulness of using tools to achieve a goal • Creative collaboration across disciplines (writing and design) • Business acumen
  • 11. Challenges to overcome: • How to build the curriculum into the classroom • How the program would effect and influence other programs at the school • Freedom of speech and the ability for students to be able to freely express themselves through creative writing • The legal ramifications and royalties issue
  • 12. This panel will discuss the process of implementation and where the program currently stands and our plans for the future.
  • 13. Because at HSPVA we want our students to soar out in their world and give them the greatest opportunities for future success.
  • 14. Thank you and we hope you choose our panel.
