Create Digital Culture
Today’s digital world is a participatory culture. Outside of the classroom, your students can create and contribute in a variety of digital forms and in a multitude of venues.
HyperStudio is the one program that your students can develop these new media skills all in one place, without having to struggle with this and that different program depending on whether the desired project is video or comics. With HyperStudio they learn a simple skill-set in K-6 classes, and use that same skill set through High School.
Whether your students preferred style of expression is prose, imagery, animation, film, or a combination, HyperStudio’s drag and drop environment, game-like interactivity, and depth of features engages younger users as well as the most demanding technology-using students.
Digital innovators also want their work to exhibit an individual style. Whether it’s painting technique, point of view, establishing a mood, the cultural universe is being filled with unique works that reflect today’s attitudes and thinking.
Help your students be meaningful contributors to this new digital culture by giving them the tools that will help them express their individuality, and have them continue thinking about the subject area they are studying.
Move your students away from creating mere fragments and have them create comprehensive projects that are worth keeping!
"I am a teacher at 107th elementary school in LAUSD, an inner-city school. Everything good that is given to us - is then taken away. The CADRE has brought art, music, dance, drama and light to a very difficult academic community. The Cadre is the only wonderful experience happening at 107th street school - this program needs to be continually funded. As well as encouraging students to find new areas of expertise, the teachers participate and learn about programs new to them as well. The Kathryn Dunham Dance Company was totally inspiring and intriguing as I got a taste of the dance the students would learn. The Marchall Dance Company was the only HOLIDAY PROGRAM my 1st graders received this year - and it was a dandy! Just Great! Samuel, a 1st grader in my class, was called to join in the welcoming dance and my whole class was proud of him and he was elated. Please, continue the funding for the CADRE. Thank you.
