    Student leadership rooted in educational excellence is an amazing combination — KUDOS to all of you for blending the two!

  2. Dr. Linda Vieth

    Congratulations to all the students who participated in the making of this awesome video! It demonstrates your enthusiasm, creativity, and tremendous talent! You are showing the world how students today want to learn. Your video illustrates how education has evolved and must continue to evolve in order to engage you as learners and help prepare you for tomorrow! Outstanding job! We are all very proud of you!

  3. Sherry Haddox

    It is so amazing to listen to all of these students talking about the different sites they use and how they incorporate them into musical videos and such. I am also amazed on how engaging some are with the videos and putting them on utube. The one student
    did 85 videos and I have not done one. Thanks for the insight.

  4. Ms. Bell, 2nd Grade, Middlefork

    I LOVED watching this presentation. It was so fun and exciting to see all the creative things you are doing. I’m impressed!

  5. Julia Hauldren

    What an outstanding presentation – I felt like I was getting a sneak peak of the great minds of the future – you are all amazing and will go far in this world! I was particularly impressed with how you collaborate and are inspired by each other! We are so lucky to have Mrs. Broos there to nurture all of this creativity! Thank you for sharing your stories – they inspire all of us – as a mother your stories inspire me to want to support the projects my kids do – even when I don’t understand all the technology behind what they are wanting to do! Keep being creative and sharing it with others! Congratulations to everyone! I can’t wait to see where you all go and what you all do in the future!

    This is fantastic, and I am so glad that there was a presentation about the power and importance of music, and how much it is integral to multimedia, gaming and more. I wish we had a music lab like it appears you have. Your students are clearly charged up and creative, and creating a path to learning.

    I was excited to see students/young people being able to express themselves by incorporating music with technology (or whatever other talent the students posessed).The students were not only knowledgable about what it was they were creating but showed dedication and enthusiasm. The teacher in this clip was definitely a mentor in helping these students expand their thoughts and talents.

  8. Francisco Rodriguez

    This is a wonderful and inspiring presentation. The sad part is most school districts do not have the technology to develop similar projects. Another sad reality is the lack of interest put into the art programs in order to prepare students for mandatory state exams.
