Valera Screens is committed to helping create a digital classroom experience that inspires students to be more engaged, creative, inquisitive and collaborative. We believe that these are important qualities that will be key to their future endeavors both personally and in the digital workplace.
The use of mobile technology in schools is already proving to be of great benefit as learning, communication, and research tools. Through its Unleashing Classrooms program, Valera Screens is looking to empower young digital creators by providing K12 classrooms with its Green Screen technologies and tools. We are excited for students to expand the possibilities of their video projects by being able to add special effects and backgrounds, which in the past could only be done by the Hollywood studios.
The Unleashing Classrooms program provides schools with free green screens. Every month, a classroom will be selected and awarded a Creator and Explorer series green screen. Our hope is to inspire teachers to create exciting lesson plans incorporating video based student assignments. While the Valera green screens can be used in the classroom, we hope that teachers will also loan them out to students so that they can make marvelous creations at home as well.
