CALL FOR ENTRIES

Yeah, having your schoolwork posted on the fridge at home is cool. But having a video you made posted on the White House website and screened at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue? We think that’s pretty cool, too. That’s why White House is super-excited to announce the first-ever White House Student Film Festival: a video contest created just for K-12 students, and whose finalists will have their short films shown at the White House. Finalist videos may also be featured on the White House website, YouTube channel, and social media pages.

THE PRESIDENT HAS AN ASSIGNMENT FOR YOU

Our schools are more high-tech than ever. There are laptops in nearly every classroom. You can take an online course on Japanese — and then video chat with a kid from Japan. You can learn about geometry through an app on your iPad. So, what does it all mean?

We’re looking for videos that highlight the power of technology in schools.

Your film should address at least one of the following themes:

1. How you currently use technology in your classroom or school.
2. The role technology will play in education in the future.

Here are some topics that you may want to consider as idea starters when deciding what your video could be.
How does technology help with:

Personalized Learning
Online Learning
Global Collaboration
Student Creativity
Making and Tinkering
Project Based Learning
Critical Thinking

Consider showing the following in your video.
These are examples only:

The use of technology as a creation tool
The use of technology in new and innovative ways
The use of technology to access high quality online content and resources
