Hive NYC Project Learning Lab: Reel Works Presentation

  1. 1. PARTNERS
  2. 2. THE PARTNERSHIP Reel Works and Urban Arts Partnership have collaborated over the past year to fine-tune how we teach media to young people. We continue our work to develop a badging system that represents a unique way to frame educational competencies that students can easily take with them into the real world.
  3. 3. HIVE NYC PROJECT LEARNING LAB Our goals are: ● to create an open system for all organizations to use ● to extend this system to middle and high schools ● to obtain and increase buy-in from the film, media, and TV industry to use badges as indicators of work- readiness
  4. 4. WHAT IS BADGING? Digital badges are a visual symbol of a competency -- they signal to others what you know and can do.
  5. 5. WHAT IS MEDIA BADGING? We have developed and implemented a new badge system for our introductory filmmaking workshops that consists of 6 learning modules that span the filmmaking sequence -- from Idea Formation to Exhibition. KEY MODULES: ○ Storytelling ○ Camera ○ Editing ○ Sound ○ Production ○ Leadership

  15. 15. Staff Reflection on Badging: “Badging allowed for reflection as we looked at our curriculum to see holes that we had, in terms of providing clear expectations and benchmarks to measure those expectations. That process of reflection really strengthened the curriculum.” - Laurel Gwizdak, Education Director
  16. 16. CHALLENGES/QUESTIONS ● AGREEMENT AND CLARITY ● INSTRUCTIONAL PRACTICE ○ INTEGRATION vs. ADD-ON ● LEVELING ○ FOR DIFFERENT CONTEXTS ○ NARRATIVE vs. DOC
