What is Media Tech? ♕
Media tech is using technology to create media. Media tech includes blogging, videography, journalism, etc. Media technology helps us connect with others and the world around us. The main purpose of this can be broken down into three categories:
- To educate
- To entertain
- To make life easier
For our second module, my group and I chose the intro to media Tech module. We had a lot of fun making the video and coming up with an innovation for future generations.
What Our Design Was
In our class we had to make a video of an invention we made, based off media technology. The idea we came up with was to put a system on the refrigerator that will help you make healthy food choices. The system would also tell you the nutrition facts of the food in the refrigerator. This system is easy to use and will help people make healthy and good food choices. Like our Ann Richards statement… “Commit to a healthy and well balanced lifestyles..” ✌
How We Made The Video ✿
First we came up with our idea, and wrote a thorough script for our video. We then used Lestle’s camera from home to filmwith, we borrowed Mrs. Sauter’s tripod, and headed outside to start filming. We started filming, and talking to the camera became very natural for us. After we finished filming we imported all the video clips we filmed and started editing. The editing was the hardest part for us, it was tough to incorporate three people into the editing process on one computer. Since we already had a bit experience editing we managed to edit well and make an awesome video. We used the song, ‘Smile Bright’ by Letters and Lights in the background of our video. Overall we tried to make our video original but also formal! We had so much fun filming and editing the video.
☺How Much Fun We Had☻
We had so much fun working in the Media Technology field. It was really cool to learn how technology works and to even come up with our own project! You never know maybe one day our idea will become a legit technology! Our whole group now wants to be in media tech when we go to highschool because it really stretches your imagination and makes you think outside of the box. There are so many things you can do besides video, we just got a little taste and so far the media tech field is our favorite. We want to start making more videos and explore this field more because there are so many options for what you can do and how you want to create!
