Mr. Rewis’s class received a studio in a box Audio Visual Film Technology package that will allow students to film and broadcast high quality video and stream live by using the ESE Networks platform.

The knowledge that students will gain from the use of this equipment will allow them to develop a problem-solving mindset, and gain 21st Century skills necessary to begin a career in the television or motion picture industry.
The package included a new Sony HD camcorder, a Sony lavalier wireless microphone, headphones, performer PC encoder, video cable, a 20” widescreen LED backlit monitor, 3 iPad mini’s which included tripods, cases, and mics, 24/7 tech support, hands-on training, one-on-one virtual training from ESE network along with a 2 year adobe creative cloud license.

Plagiarism refers to a form of cheating that has been defined as
“the false assumption of authorship: the wrongful act of taking the product of
another person’s mind, and presenting it as one’s own” (Alexander Lindley,
Plagiarism and Originality (New York: Harper,1952]2). To use another person’s
ideas or expressions in your writing without acknowledging the source is to
plagiarize. Plagiarism, then, constitutes intellectual theft and often carries severe
penalties, ranging from failure in a course to expulsion from school….
At all times during during research and writing, guard against the
possibility of inadvertent plagiarism by keeping careful notes that
distinguish between your musings and thoughts and the material you
gather from others. A writer who fails to give appropriate
acknowledgment when repeating another’s wording or particularly apt
term, paraphrasing another’s argument, or presenting another’s
line of thinking is guilty of plagiarism. You may certainly use other
person’s words and thoughts in your research paper, but the borrowed
material must not appear to be your creation.
