Connected Classrooms Application
FILMMAKERS WITHOUT BORDERS (FWB) is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that is dedicated to empowering the next generation of digital storytellers. Through various grants, educational resources, and international fellowships, FWB provides youth from underserved communities with the technical training, media literacy skills, and technology to leverage the creative process as a means for interpreting their role in their society. FWB’s Connected Classrooms program is a collaborative filmmaking project linking two classrooms in different parts of the world. Students in different schools use email and other cloud-based technologies to virtually co-write, co-film, and co-edit a short film project over the course of a semester. Students work together online and learn about another culture and community through the filmmaking process.
