Denver School of Science and Technology, DSST
The Denver School of Science and Technology (within the Denver Public School System) received a grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to create videos of their highly effective teaching strategies and to put the clips on the Internet. Working within different categories, ie, Holistic Accountability, Broken Windows Theory, High Expectations, Staff Committment, videos were created over the school year within each framework to highlight best teaching practices.
Because of the work that DSST completed using videos created by Core Interactive Media on their website, the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation extended their grant money, even though the focus of their foundation had changed.
"We've had great success working with Core Interactive Media and Linda Petrie. She was responsive, professional, and always delivered by the specified deadlines. Often times I would need to call her with very little notice and she would always show up to shoot. I enjoyed working with her so much that I have just hired her on for a new project."
