Nos Chemins vers la paix: Award Winning Video!

Valley View Middle School French Imersion teacher, Heather Palmer created this award winning video, Nos Chemins vers la paix, for the Tel.A.Vision "Vision For America" Contest.

Powered by One True Media, Tel.A.Vision.tv allows students to create videos that share their vision for the future. Heather wanted to use this video to promote the Wiki she and her students created for "6 Billion Paths to Peace." On the wiki, Palmer states:
Our project was inspired by the program "Six Billion Paths to Peace", an initiative of the Shinnyo-en foundation. We like the challenge the program offers us: commit to making a difference in this moment, in this day, in this lifetime!

Palmer received her award last week at the National Service Learning Conference, in Nashville, TN. Way to go, Heather!

NOTE: A few weeks ago while looking at the copyright free music available on the site, I notice a cover of the "Spinal Tap" song "Big Bottom" as one of the choices. While I love the movie, I was concerned that a song like this was on a site being marketed to students at the Elementary level.
I e-mailed, and within a few days, received a nice response from Tel.A.Vision founder, George Johnson, stating that the song had been removed.
