Title: Envision My Ideal World


Summary

An international, collaborative multimedia creation of content in which teenagers will share their envisaged ideal world compiled into one master video.


Description

Teenagers of each participating site will submit video footage of not more than two minutes expressing the ideal world that they would like to see in place. Every site can have as many teenagers as possible participating but the video must not be any more than two minutes. 

The video footage will be submitted to iEARN learners of PMM Girls’ School, Jinja (Uganda) to be compiled into one master video.

After reviews and critiques, the PMM Girls learners share out the completed master video to their counter parts in all the participating sites/schools.

Each site/school will then go ahead to share the completed media with target audiences within their localities and get feedback.

The learners share out the feedback received with their participating counterparts using any means possible – skype, email, facebook, etc.

Throughout the process, the participating learners and their educators will be asked to attempt behind-the-scenes coverage of their project activities and have it send to learners of PMM Girls’ School. This will later be used to create a behind-the-scenes video of the project.
