Forward
The “Oswego Update Project” is a collaboration between SUNY Oswego and the NYS Education Department to refresh and modernize existing Technology Education course outlines. New York State Learning Standards will be identified and organized.
The original work was a NYSED initiative during the transformation from Industrial Arts to Technology Education in the 1980s. These courses have proven to be very popular and most durable for the profession. In fact, many have been used as course models in other states.

Hundreds of sections are offered in New York state each year, according to the Basic Educational Data System (BEDS). However, the objectives need to be revisited with a current eye, successful teaching strategies need to be surveyed in the field, bibliographies should be updated, and Internet resources added, as they were unavailable during the original project.

It is hoped that this graduate-level research endeavor will accomplish the following:


  • provide a solid graduate research project for the developers involved (learning by doing)




  • involve known, successful teachers as consultants to the process through a common interview template




  • honor the work and dedication of the original writing teams




  • refresh course objectives and teaching strategies




  • forge a more uniform format between and among course outlines




  • update the bibliography of each course to reflect the last ten years of literature review




  • include Internet resources both useful as general professional tools, and as specific content enhancement




  • develop an index showing how NYS M/S/T standards are accomplished for each course objective

The result will be an enhancement for graduate students at SUNY-Oswego, NYSED implementation goals, and Technology Education teachers in New York state. Course outlines will be digitally reproduced and made available through appropriate Internet and electronic media.

General Instructional Strategies
The general way the course is going to be run is by lessons, and real world hands-on activities. There will be approximately 20-25 students in a class and depending on the school. This course may be team-taught with the English department. This will help out with the number of activities that will reflect the English aspect of learning.

In order to run this class here is the kind of room and equipment that needs to be supplied. The laboratory needs to have the following media equipment; mixing board, console, microphone, cart machine, tape recorder, camcorder, CD player, turntable and amplifier, and the editing equipment. They need to have accuses to personal computers capable of integrating text, graphics, sound, video, and communication interfaces. For the hands-on activities, workstations representing up-to-date processes and methods should be available in sufficient numbers.

With the available equipment and facilities the students will be directed through the production stages of media in order for them to run a successful show on their own. After students learn everything there is to know about media production they will be let go on their own to run a their own show. The job of the teacher is to prepare students in develop and running alive show, after that their job is to only be there to supervise, evaluate, and to give advice if asked.

Production Procedures

These are the production procedures for all HKIS Video Technology classes. Students will follow these steps for videotaped news stories, feature stories, CNN SB stories, dramatizations, class exercises, and individual projects. As video production is integrated with other courses, teachers will also be encouraged to follow and implement these procedures.



A. PRE-PRODUCTION
  1. Prepare a proposal - following the CNN SB form for story proposals or an adaptation of this form. The proposal is designed to help identify a target audience, a clear purpose and elements to include.


  2. Get approval to proceed with story (project) from instructor (or CNN SB Program Director).

  3. Prepare detailed shot list, location maps, props list, and a sketched storyboard.

  4. List interviewees, get their permission and prepare them by providing a list of your questions in writing, then schedule the interviews.

  5. Fill out the camera/equipment checkout form.

  6. Get approval to proceed with the Production phase from instructor (usually a signature on the equipment checkout form).

B. PRODUCTION

  1. Check out appropriate camera and equipment. (Equipment may be kept overnight for only one night. All equipment must be checked in the following day before school starts.)

  2. Review tapes. Reshoot if necessary.

  3. Log all tapes - record in and out time code of all useable shots noting best shots.

  4. Transcribe all interviews and spoken lines. Record all time codes and prepare an EDL (edit decision list) to identify specific parts of the tape you will use. This will help you transfer only the footage you need to the hard drive.

  5. Write script based on your transcribed text and shots using the three column format (Shot# | Picture | Sound);

  6. Show instructor your EDL and script. Get approval on script (signature) to proceed to the Post-Production phase.

C. POST-PRODUCTION

  1. Transfer videotape to your hard drive according to your EDL.

  2. Edit according to the approved script.

  3. Prepare music, narration, other sounds.

  4. Prepare graphics, titles, select fonts.

  5. Get instructor approval to record to Master DV Tape for class and VHS for personal copy (student supplies VHS tape).
  6. Deliver for broadcast at HKIS if requested (or transfer to NTSC for shipment to CNN SB in Atlanta).


  7. Capture to computer file and encode for video streaming on DragonNet.


Video Technology Skills Building

1. Story Proposal - write a story proposal using the CNN Student Bureau format; see the. (10 pts.)

2. First Production - using the DV camera and Casablanca editing system to learn how to use both. Put together a short video to music or narration. (30 pts. Individual grade. 10 pts - use of camera, 10 pts- editing technique, 10 pts - communication)

3. Action Shot/Editing exercise - 3 shots of a single action with WS, MS and/or CU with editing so that action flows through each shot without unpleasant or noticeable effect. (20 pts. Individual grade. 10 pts - use of camera, 10pts - editing technique)

4. SSA (School Service Announcement) or PSA (Public SA) - make a TV 'spot' for a club, a sports team, the environment, Amnesty International, or some other organization to advertise an event or service. 30 to 60 seconds maximum. Make it for "News & Views". (30pts; 10pts - story proposal & interview questions, 10pts - shots & audio, 10pts - edited project; can do multiple times. Everyone must Produce/Direct one; individual grade.)

Video Technology as Communication

5. Interviewing exercise - Set your goal; write a set of interview questions to ask a friend, a teacher, an adult, a parent about some issue or life story. Videotape the exchange, edit if necessary. Placement of camera and microphone(s) will determine effectiveness of interview. Use interesting locations, angles, or include action - like walking. Try to tell a story through the interview. Prepare the interviewee in advance. (20 pts, individual grade; 10pts - production, 10 pts - transcribed interview.)

6. Select one of the following:


Promotional /Documentary/PSA - Document or promote the activities of an HKIS service organization. Select one from SOS or from a list of clubs, visit and find out what they do from members. Then write a script to present to the group for approval. If approved set up a time to videotape and interview members. 5-15 minutes.

CNN SB 2 minute story - according to CNN SB guidelines on current issue or human interest story for a global student audience. Student will actually 'pitch' story to a program director in Atlanta or to an HKIS 'News & Views' producer.

Music Video - Select a piece of music and record images that illustrate the theme. Edit images to the beat of the music, add special effects, graphics, text, etc. This is an editing challenge for the creative filmmaker.

These must be thoroughly researched, all written work (story proposal, shooting list or story, interview questions, tape logs, transcribed interviews and narratives, editing script) to be turned in, and project worked on throughout the semester. (100 pts. individual grade.)


10 pts each for following items:
     1) story proposal,
    2) list of shots, locations, interviewees,
    3) list of interview questions,
    4) record of time spent on project,
    5) list of student participants;
    6) log of footage;
10 pts - transcribed interviews or narrative;
20 pts - formal script with transcription/narration;
10 pts - completed project.

Extra Projects

(More experience leads to better results)

1. Tape a School Event - choose a sport event, music or drama performance, club activity, guest speaker (interview required), then write proposal, check out equipment, record and edit program. (20 pts. each; 10pts - shot list, 10pts - edited project; can do this multiple times; individual grade.) Contact "News & Views" to provide footage, stories for broadcast.

2. Commercial - produce a 30 to 60 second TV ad for a real product (can be a real or fictional client). Use voice, music, effects, titling - everything like a real commercial. (30 pts. each; 10pts - storyboard, 10pts - narrative script, 10pts - editing, effects & text; can do multiple times, individual grade.)

3. Webstream - 30 seconds maximum on a topic of interest to the DragonNet. Use voice, music, effects, titles, action in a tightly edited video to be put on the website for streaming. Users of DragonNet will be able to view the work by activating the video stream.


All assignments for 40 points and above will be turned in to the teacher in a large envelop (provided):



  • Original Story Proposal

  • List of shots, locations, interviewees, etc.

  • Interview questions (if used)

  • Time spent on project for writing, shooting and editing

  • List of other student participants in project

  • Script for editing including transcribed interviews and narration

  • The final edited videotape (mini-DV) complete with title and credits listing all production assistants and talent.

Students will be able to make VHS copies of their productions. Written materials will be returned once grading is completed. Completed projects will be saved on mini-DV tapes but camera recordings will be reused.

Video Lab Rules

These are rules for all HKIS Video Technology classes.

1. Cameras and related equipment must be signed out. Students are responsible for all equipment in their possession once signed out. Signing out applies to all uses - on campus or off-campus.

2. Cameras and related equipment may be taken off-campus for a 24 hour period ONLY. Failure to return equipment before school starts the day after being signed out will result in a possible deduction of points from grade for project.

3. When using a used DV tape, always check to see that you are NOT recording over someone else's footage. Go to the end of the tape, but cue it over the last shot so that there is no "raw" footage. This will keep the time code from resetting to 0:00.

4. Always use a tripod.

5. Use a microphone unless audio is not crucial to your shots. Use a handheld or a wireless microphone for interviews; don't rely on the built-in mic.

6. Avoid using the ZOOM feature. Set up your shot with the ZOOM before recording, but do not ZOOM during a shot.

7. Recharge camera batteries ONLY after they have been completely discharged.
