Last night at 2am we received notification from Goodtube that Soy Sen and his team had won the Goodtube Spring Video Competition. Their submission, entitled “I Am One” describes the PLF technology program from the perspective of the student and goes on to explain why the media class needs the Goodtube grant; in order to make the program available to more students, buy equipment and fund a teacher. The grant, in the amount of $10,000 will arrive just in time to get the students working on some projects over the summer and be ready when school starts to integrate media into an already highly successful technology program at Tchey School.
