The school library should already be a center for information, for technology and for creation in a school. Those aspects uniquely position the library program to create an ad hoc television studio. Because many schools and districts don't have the money to invest in a state-of-the art studio, this webinar focuses on how to create a functional studio on a tight budget. Presenter Brandon Otte focuses on software, hardware and other preparation work required for creation of a studio, focusing specifically on a Windows environment using free vMix software, but also presents information on using a Mac-based environment. Brandon also demonstrates how the studio can be used to help students create projects including creating a daily live or taped news show, student-created video presentations, and student documentaries.
Attendees should leave the webinar with the knowledge and skills to create their own television studio in the school library.
Attendees will have a basic understanding of the technical requirements of a television studio and how to use it on a regular basis.
Attendees will develop project ideas for use in a school television studio, including student-run news programs and literature reflection.
