Educators from almost two dozen high schools got a lesson in super-quick video production and “flipped” classrooms recently, when their peers from the Mooresville Graded School District in North Carolina came to Houston to share their expertise on one-to-one student/laptop initiatives.
This cute video, created by the team from Mooresville to show how easy short films are to produce, features teachers from the Phase II schools who completed the training.
HISD launched its own version of Mooresville’s one-to-one initiative, dubbed PowerUp, at 11 campuses this past school year, and 21 more high schools will be implementing the program this fall. Teachers at those schools will begin receiving their laptops next week. Distribution of all laptops is expected to be complete by Aug. 21.
