Retired DA history teacher Dave Gould sent news of an interesting online student film screening today at 2:30.
A few months ago, the White House challenged students all across the country to create short films answering a simple question:

and how will it change the educational experience for kids in the future?
The response was overwhelming. And today, the 16 official selections are going to be screened at the first-ever White House Student Film Festival. Click here to see the films.
