Karin McKemey, the TV production class teacher (although she claims her role is a facilitator), who submitted the video project to the southeast?chapter?of the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences (NATAS) stated in a post and Tweet…
“Ummm- ya, so my kids just won a FLIPPING EMMY… no big deal or anything….I’m speechless… very proud project facilitator moment!”
Other Tweets from?friends, supporters?and students echoed?Karin’s happiness and?excitement for her students.
The video project foursome was up against 6 other ?schools in the category of Public Service (PSA)/Public Affairs/Community Service Excellence.
Their PSA video project promoted checking ?facts before students spread information. ?A great?message?since social media is now a way of ?life for most students.
The students used time?lapse?techniques?to?create?the creative posted note scene in their video.
