The pandemic sure has shaken up the world, but it hasn’t shaken our students’ commitment to JuiceMedia! On March 15th, JM made the move to online platforms. We now use Zoom to meet twice a week, and the JuiceMedia Youth Committee still meets every other Wednesday. The students are continuing the projects that they started while we were still in-person, and those who had finished their projects before moving online are coming up with quarantine-safe ways to tell visual stories.
We have utilized screensharing in Zoom in many ways, one of which is evidenced above. Ben was able to give his prop-making presentation by screensharing his powerpoint, then showed us some props he’s made while we had a Q&A with the rest of the students.
We’ve also been able to play an adapted version of pictionary via Zoom! The students enjoy playing this during JM session breaks. We also are sure to stretch before or during our meetings:
Suffice to say, JuiceMedia is still thriving and our students are rising to the challenge of filming while quarantining and social distancing. Hooray for the commitment of our students, interns, and instructors!
