Orange Co. Students Learn Local History by Making Movies

May 21, 2014

Orange County students are taking a different approach to learning about the history that happened right in their own backyards.

Over 350 Orange Co. middle school students made vodcasts, or mini movies, about different historical events in the area.

The students had to write, direct, act and edit their own videos for the National Park Service.

On Wednesday, they had a chance to premier their vodcasts and talk about the making of their mini-movies in Old Cabell Hall at the University of Virginia.

Organizers of the program say vodcasts are a great way to engage students with the area's local history.

a second premier of the vodcasts will be held may 30th at 7 p.m. at Orange County High School.
