Future Is Now Students Flip for Technology

A day in the life of the students and teachers involved in Kemp Junior High School's technology literacy program.

The students participating in Kemp (Texas) Junior High School’s Future Is Now program use high-definition video camcorders and digital cameras, video editing software, digital sound equipment and Symbaloo to produce video broadcasts and personal learning environments for teachers and students. Here's a behind-the-scenes look at the students filming segments for an upcoming broadcast.
