Workshop Description: iTeam Project-based Service to the Ambassador Actors
The director of the MSAD 75 Ambassador Actors Project requested iTeam’s assistance to document their award-winning work. An iTeam member filmed the actors, co-edited and produced a mini-documentary on DVD. The Ambassador Actors Project is an award-winning theatre project for MSAD75 students. It addresses issues of social justice through storytelling. Audience members tell stories and actors improvise theatre pieces. The Maine Department of Education requested documentation to share with other schools. Sue Shaw asked iTeam to help her create a documentary. iTeams serve by collaborating on Technology Assistance Projects. Ian Hathaway helped record, edit and produce the documentary. He added value with his knowledge of editing and production techniques. The Actors and iTeam produced a documentary showing MSAD 75 students and staff collaborating to enhance learning for all students.
