Computer Classes of the Digital Age
We live in such a digital age, it is common for high school students to take a computer class to fulfill graduation requirements, and the students at Montabella High School are not an exception. Montabella High School wanted to expand the educational criteria in their Computer Applications class and help broaden their students’ technological horizons. The goal was to provide an additional program that would push the students’ creativity and knowledge of using different programs.
Receiving funds from the Montabella Community Schools Education Fund, a permanently endowed fund of the Mt. Pleasant Area Community Foundation, the school was able to purchase a program license for the Adobe Premiere Elements 18 and headsets with microphones. This computer program will aid students as they practice their video editing skills and learn how to add voice overlays and audio tracks to enhance their videos.
Although it may not seem like much, these students will bring these real skills with them into their futures. Students will be able to use this technology to benefit community members, the school, and especially themselves. This class may lead some to take further classes at higher education levels or even follow a career in the film industry.
