Inspiring and leading innovation in education


 Student Films Premier on Big Screen at iVIE Festival

Students from throughout the county will get a chance to see their short films on the big screen April 26 as part of the annual Innovative Video in Education (iVIE) Festival.

The festival will feature a screening of all 63 short videos nominated for an iVIE Award this year. Winners will be announced at a special ceremony May 6.

The competition organized by the San Diego County Office of Education encourages students in kindergarten through 12th grade from throughout the county to create short videos, offering them important lessons in collaboration and public service.

It continues to grow each year as educators work to incorporate more project-based and hands-on lessons as part of the implementation of the Common Core State Standards. The program provides a chance for students to take ownership of their learning in a collaborative and rigorous environment.

"It's transformative," said Leigh A. Murrell, who's organizing the program this year. "It's a great learning experience for the kids."

The iVIE Festival is scheduled to run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. April 26 at UltraStar Mission Valley Cinemas, 7510 Hazard Center Drive in San Diego.
