My students need these items for our class to succeed. They need a tripod, 2 Microphone Cables and a Pro-Pole Extension Pole.
Have you ever been so excited about a project, but then realized that you have to wait at least a day, sometimes two or three before you can actually start on it? My Broadcasting Class is brand new and my students are faced with this problem every day due to us not having enough working equipment.
We are a news broadcast program at our high school.
Our program is made up of passionate students who applied to be in the course and spend tons of extra time and energy before and after school creating a quality news shows. There is a high quality example of what journalism is in our school as our newspaper and yearbook are top notch every year. My students try their best to follow this example, in a video journalism sense. We try to capture all of the important moments on video and then report them back to the school and community. We also have a strong sense of archiving, which would allow future generations to view our work, and learn from it. Our class receives no funding from our school, and because we are fairly new, we don't have a lot of equipment at our disposal. This project is truly our chance to get started with building our program.
These resources could truly engage my students in the course and the world of broadcasting. By having these microphone cords, the students would be able to record their own video pieces, and monitor the audio at the same time. This would allow our students to get out into the school and record everything that is going on. These materials will also allow students to get real life experience with having technology assigned to them, as one day (if they pursue a career in broadcasting) they will be responsible for their own equipment. It's my hope that this class will inspire some of them to someday join the profession in the "real world."
This project will not only impact the education of my students.
It will also have a profound impact on our school community. By allowing the students to have enough equipment for a class of 32, they will be able to cover more events occurring at our school. It will not only allow my students to be more productive and produce better quality work, but it will fill our student body with pride when they review the videos from my class, and reflect upon the events from our school year.
