The Producers' Project

Blending Academic Inquiry with Documentary Filmmaking

Spurred in part by HEAVEN's experience of using technology to empower education, and in full by Vergant founder Wendy Dubit's lifelong quest for hands-on learning, Vergant Ed is proud to introduce The Producers' Project and The Education Station -- two programs that add real-world relevance to academics while deepening participants' mastery and use of media.

What does it mean to be a Producer? According to Webster's, it is to give birth or rise to; to compose, create, or bring about by intellectual or physical effort; to present to the public on the stage or screen or over radio or television; to offer to view or notice.

Vergant Ed is now piloting The Producers' Project and The Education Station as initiatives that will use television, new media and the best of interactivity (i.e. fully engaged teachers and students) to enrich and enliven the teaching, learning and testing of Math, Science and English Language Arts.

The Producers' Project puts powerful tools of production, presentation and self-directed learning into the hands of high school students and staff, while The Education Station carries and promotes the educational and motivational programming created by them.

To learn more, visit The Producers' Project and The Education Station. Alternative Superintendecy high school students and staff are also encouraged to apply for our Producers' Project Fall '02 Programs, held in in partnership with the Alternative Superintendency of New York City’s Board of Education.
