KET School Video Project
Kentucky schools can upload student-produced videos year-round, directly to KET!
We are seeking videos made by Kentucky K-20 students, classes, organizations, and clubs:
School news programs and stories, public service announcements, documentaries, art/music videos, classroom project videos, training/tutorial videos, anything you and your students are making that you'd like to share!
- Upload: Visit the Upload Video page to send us your video. KET will check the technical quality and content. After approval, we'll send an e-mail announcing that your video can be seen online.
- Watch!: Visit the Explore Videos page to see and search uploaded student videos. Share your video with friends and family, with teachers and schools, link to it from a student class project, or use it as a teaching resource.
- For assistance, call or email Jeff Gray at 800-432-0951 ext 7263; 859-258-7263.

Student-produced videos can be useful as instructional tools and are positive examples of blending technology and Core Content in the classroom for inspiring, project-based learning. They can be viewed from a variety of perspectives:
- standards-based instruction
- examples of ways to embed standards within video production units
- instructional tools or how-to guides for video production
- sources of inspiration for new lessons or units
- sources of ideas for video projects or documentaries, especially ones with local color, interest, and/or historical significance
- instructional openings for discussing health and other safety issues, including public service announcements
- examples of formats, features, and interviews for expanding or updating news programs
