Week of Code Video Celebration on the Michigan Learning Channel

Join the Michigan Learning Channel for a statewide campaign to encourage schools to participate in computer science education – specifically, encouraging schools to participate in a short computer science activity during Computer Science Education Week, December 5-11, 2021.

To celebrate, we’re inviting students from across Michigan to contribute a short video that highlights how students across the state are using computer science to create interesting things! The Michigan Learning Channel will select up to 6 videos that will be shared on TV and social media to promote computer science education and the Hour of Code.

The Challenge:

Create a short video that highlights how students at your school are using computer science – either in the classroom, as a group project, or as part of a club or after-school activity.

Your video should focus on something you have created using code or computer skills. Tell us about what you made, why, and how you used programming to make your project work.

Video Submission Process & Guidelines

  • Videos should be between 1 and 3 minutes in length
  • Please refer to our guide with tips for filming a good video using a mobile phone camera
  • Guidelines

What are we looking to feature?

  • Hour of Code events or similar type events (family coding nights)
  • Computer science activities that you incorporate in your classroom. (Whether it is from your curriculum or something you developed yourself)
    • Students talking about their project they are working or walking through their project
    • Teachers sharing about the activity and about what the students are doing
  • After school computer science related clubs
    • Students sharing the program, robot, or hardware
    • Teachers sharing about the activity and what the students are doing
  • Other innovative projects that are shared from student or teacher perspective

Who is filming the clips that will be featured?

The Michigan Learning Channel has an editing team that will create the pieces that will be aired. Therefore, we are requesting teachers to capture 1-3 minute videos of students or themselves. This can be done off your phone and does not require additional equipment. Existing videos can work as well. In most cases, we are looking for videos that have yet to be edited (example: no background music). If you are unsure, reach out to DPTV producer Kyle Vernier at kvernier@dptv.org.

Timeline for submitting video clips

We will need all video clips to be submitted by November 12, 2021 in order to provide the editors time to edit the clips for their needs.
