How do you take part in your child’s school events while on a business trip?
Watch it live through the internet of course!
Students in the ET Booth Middle School’s News Club use audio/visual technology to live stream school events through the world wide web such as basketball games, the daily morning news, and the Annual Veterans Day Celebration. The live streaming of school events allows family and friends of ET Booth students to enjoy the experience even when they cannot be there in person. Parents who are traveling for work, grandparents, and other friends and family around the world have used the service to take part in the school events. Sixth through eighth grade students learn to operate and set up High Definition video cameras and also utilize an encoder for streaming through Wirecast. News Club and Technology team members use Adobe Premiere to edit recorded videos such as guest speakers, the spelling bee, the geography bee, and field day, among other school events. Students also use the software to create features for the morning news, commercials, and school club/events promotions. Using this technology in middle school is preparing students for the Audio/Video Technology and Film (AVTF) Career Pathway at Etowah High School.
