Earlier this week, we posted a WTVA news video about the new SmartLab in Columbus High School in Mississippi. Here's another great news article about the program from The Dispatch.
We often feature articles in this blog about how SmartLabs excite and engage learners. This article shows how SmartLabs can also inspire a community.
The new SmartLab at Columbus High School (Columbus, MS) is part of an innovative after-school program. The goal of the Columbus SmartLab is to help students gain critical 21st century skills as they prepare to enter the workforce.
The Columbus SmartLab program was featured on Tupelo-Columbus area WTVA News.
We're proud to report several recent achievements by our Student Broadcast Studio partner schools.
Congratulations to Colorado partner schools Rock Canyon High School and Regis Jesuit High School who took 1st and 3rd place Video Production awards at J-Day - an annual event hosted by the Colorado High School Press Association!
Also worth celebrating is the very first broadcast by new Student Broadcast Studio partner school Barack Obama School of Leadership and STEM in Chicago Heights, IL. At the end of the training sessions we provided, the group of 6th, 7th and 8th grade students were able to write, direct and produce the broadcast entirely on their own using professional broadcast tools like teleprompters and virtual sets. The students are off to a great start and are proud to share their learning experience (for example, they now know how to properly check volume levels)! We're confident we'll see these young journalists earning video production awards soon too! Enjoy watching their first video broadcast below.
