Kids Documentary Camp

I am excited to share that MINEDUC and OLPC-Rwanda will be holding a joint Documentary Camp in which Rwandan children will create a short documentary about ” a day in their life.” They will work in groups, harnessing advanced mathematical, programming and social science skills and edit together their short documentaries into a final film to be premiered for their parents, community and esteemed stakeholders. We also hope to involve the local Rwanda film community, “Hillywood.” We will start the work beginning next week. I love this idea of the camp because although we advocate “not teaching the laptop” due to time restraints, for example, just 1-week with children, we end up teaching the basics and have little opportunity to go very deep. This time, children will be using Record and some editing software, they will have time and space to focus on their documentaries and already have the necessary knowledge needed to use the laptop. We plan to have participants from La Colombiere, Green Hills, ESCAF schools.
