Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

BAMS: We’re Not Gonna Take It!


As educators, we are all very aware that bullying exists in our schools. At the same time, we also know that it is our responsibility to do our very best to create a climate in which all students can learn in a safe environment.

With that said, my Tech Club students put their collective minds together to develop a way in which we could help put an end to this issue at B-A. The consensus: Write and produce a school-wide antibullying video starring all of the students in the Bellwood-Antis Middle School—one that can be used to promote positive behaviors in our district and beyond!

That’s right! Check out our unique way of showing how we will not tolerate negative behaviors in our hallways!

Disclaimer: Because this is not your ordinary anti-bullying video, you won’t be able to watch it just once!

In addition to combining a variety of tech skills and tools to create the finished product, my Tech Club students learned how communicate, collaborate and problem solve in order to organize and facilitate a project that involved all members of our faculty and student body—all essential 21st Century learning goals.

Just another reason why I think the BAMS Tech Club rocks!

Classroom Connection:

Show the BAMS: We’re Not Gonna Take It! video as part of an antibullying campaign in your school. Better yet—create a video of your own to promote this very important topic.

A shout out to all of my BAMS colleagues—especially Mr. Trexler—for your help in making this video project a huge success! And a high five to my “tech kids” for all of your hard work and dedication—during and afterschool—to accomplish your goal of creating a meaningful video!

For those who may be wondering—we used the following tech tools to create the video:

» Digital video recorder

» iPad—QuickVoice app to record the voice over; Intro Designer app to create the video credits

» Digital Hotcakes web site—Film effect for video intro

» Movie Maker

» MS Word—Small signs

» Banner and large signs—Drawn and painted by the Tech Club students
