Second Day at VVP!

My name is Walleska and I am a NYC public school teacher helping facilitate the Virtual Video Project. In this capacity, I have had the pleasure of getting to know and working with an extremely talented group of students and an energetic and dedicated staff at Global Kids, Inc.

I just finished up my second day with VVP and it has been nothing short of exciting! Yesterday, we introduced youth (and myself!) to Machinima, Second Life, and the new Badging System. Today, youth were split up into different workshops to work on different pieces of their movie. I worked with the screen-writing group on creating an original storyline that highlights health effects due to climate change. Our group heavily debated issues of climate change around the world and were actively engaged in writing a script that educated others on these issues. All in all, it has been an extremely rewarding and jam-packed two days! I am excited to continue helping students in developing their storyline and seeing the final product.

Until next time!
