Text of Hive NYC Project Learning Lab: Reel Works Presentation



    Reel Works and Urban Arts Partnership have collaborated over the past year to fine-tune how we teach media to young people. We continue our work to develop a badging system that represents a unique way to frame educational competencies that students can easily take with them into the real world.

  • HIVE NYC PROJECT LEARNING LABOur goals are: to create an open system for all organizations to use to extend this system to middle and high schools to obtain and increase buy-in from the film, media, and

    TV industry to use badges as indicators of work-readiness


    Digital badges are a visual symbol of a competency -- they signal to others what you know and can do.

  • WHAT IS MEDIA BADGING?We have developed and implemented a new badge system for our introductory filmmaking workshops that consists of 6 learning modules that span the filmmaking sequence -- from Idea Formation to Exhibition.

    KEY MODULES: Storytelling Camera Editing Sound Production Leadership
