this site is driven by the following

  • Students love drama.
  • Young people love to see themselves on the big screen.
  • When technology is simple enough to use, children*s creativity can emerge through the use of that technology.
  • Young people are incredibly talented and naturally creative.
  • When technology meets creativity, and when technology and creativity partner with the mastery of content, magic can happen.

the story behind the drama

This website is the brain child of two teachers in the Shelley School District who share the same vision of using technology as a tool to help students learn. The same vision is shared by the board of directors of the Idaho Education Alliance for Solutions (IDEAS) who hosts this website. The vision is also shared by the director of the Idaho Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (i-STEM) initiative at the Idaho National Laboratory. i-STEM has helped immensely with funding and technical support. The development of this site would be infinitely more difficult without the creative energy and problem-solving skills of a very dedicated web designer. And finally, none of this would be possible without some amazing students, parents and community members.

Upon the subject of education, not presuming to dictate any plan or system respecting it, I can only say that I view it as the most important subject which we as a people can be engaged in. -- Abraham Lincoln March 9, 1832
