This purpose of this site, geared toward K-12 instructors in the Native American education system, is to support the development and success of 21st Century Learning skills by way of video production technology.
The sample videos and learning objectives are from participatory youth video projects titled "ALL TRIBES Preventing Violence for REEL CHANGE," and "ALL TRIBES Charter for REEL CHANGE - Who would you talk to?"
REEL CHANGE is participatory student-driven program of Sun & Moon Vision Productions (a nonprofit film, documentary and educational video organization), that facilitates critical thinking, artistic expression, core educational standards, and community responsibility while teaching advanced technologies in video and film production.
