The Other Oscars: White House Hi-Tech Ed Film Winners

Education 5

theodp writes "Last December, the White House called on kids to film high-tech education. Three months later, the winners of the White House Student Film Festival are in. "They tell the story of exactly why it's so important that we make sure more classrooms have the kind of cutting-edge technology they promote," the White House said. The film festival, NBC reports, showcases the administration's ConnectED campaign to bring next-generation broadband and wireless to 99% of students within 5 years. Since the White House left things at 16 finalists, how about the Slashdot People's Choice Awards — which of the videos selected by the White House do you feel best "highlight the power of technology in schools"? The slickest, no doubt, is Technology in Education: A Future Classroom by young Daniel Nemroff, who gives those Microsoft 'Future Vision' video folks a run for their money."

Thank you for being a friend
Traveled down the road and back again
Your heart is true, you're a pal and a cosmonaut.

And if you threw a party
Invited everyone you ever knew
You would see the biggest gift would be from me
And the card attached would say, thank you for being a friend.

I'm utterly amazed at how they manage to type quickly with a touch keyboard while looking at the teacher. Not only do they manage to multitask, but their coordination is actually good enough to keep typing on a touch keyboard for a while without errors! Amazing!

And this years award for best film goes to... (1)

Also a self-selecting group. Only the kids with access to advanced equipment like video cameras, tablets, etc are able to even try to be part of this "project".
