The media center is a place that most students know of for their language classes in which more often than not are given an opportunity to use the podcast rooms to do voice recordings, there is also the use of the cameras to reach a creative side of them in either photography or film. We even have a micro room in which students use for their own personal work or for classes. Either way the media center is focused on media and technology which is great because that is where the future lies. However that can also take us away from other forms of advancing with technology through the crafts.
No we don’t have futuristic methods of sewing (although there are some pretty cool tinkerings you can work with if you are interested in that) but the makery is a cool place to get crafty. Where we have scrapes of cloth if you want to learn how to do basic sewing and yarn that needs some loving. In all honesty the makery is a place for people who have the desire to create things tangible. It can also serve as a place to just get those basic adulting traits we will all need at some point.
iMovie is one of my favorite programs in the media center. iMovie is simple, yet versatile — perfect for beginners or anyone looking to make a quick, basic video. The program allows users to organize and trim clips, add transitions and filters, and include audio and sound effects. Video editing programs can seem intimidating to those who have never used them before, but there are a plethora of free iMovie tutorials available on the internet in whatever format you prefer. Some of my favorites include this YouTube tutorial and the iMovie category on Wikihow. However, if you need extra guidance on a video project for class, Media Center assistants are always happy to help!
