In December 2016 we brought students from grades 6, 7 & 8 at the Burlington Christian Academy, together with some residents of LaSalle Park Residential Community. They created 8 videos which were uploaded to Youtube. We then held a contest to see who would get the most hits over the next 5 days. Burlington businesses on Brant Street were very generous and donated great prizes for the winners!
The pilot project was a great success, all the participants, as well as the teachers and employees at LaSalle really enjoyed the experience and Burlington Cable 23 did a wonderful piece on the project. Using the link above you can view the TV interview and follow the playlist to view the videos that were created.
I hope to repeat this project this year with other groups and am working on a proposal for a special series celebrating Canada's 150th Birthday!
Stay tuned for more...
