Silicon Valley: Competing across borders

Today, students in 8th grade in their Ethics class started to work on a class-project they wish to submit to a competition organized by the Bundeszentrale für Politische Bildung (Federal Agency for Civic Education) in Germany. They will shoot a 3-minute video based on research they’ve done collaboratively using google docs on their laptops.

The hand-held mobile-phone camera follows several students walking through campus while they answer 30 questions on fashion.
The result (which they all watch on the Smartboard) is dynamic, fun, and extremely creative!
