Spotlight: Molo Middle School, Lake Charles, Louisiana
Principal Shonna Anderson is leading her school into a new technological direction. Sure, many schools have computer labs and technology tools at the ready, but the question is how do they use them? “This school year was a big step in utilizing technology”, says Mr. Dotson, Math and News Production teacher. Mr. Dotson didn’t want to implement another news program that all other schools have. They also wanted to go much further than the school newsletter. So this year the school purchased the Adobe software suite and decided to produce their morning news program through Adobe After Effects. The technical knowledge needed to create media productions through software designed for high end Hollywood films was daunting yet possible. Mr. Dotson says, “learning programs like After Effects allows our students to create in ways that push their imagination.” As the school continues to build upon that knowledge base, future media productions will no longer appear to be “school made”, due to the professional content the students are learning.
