This grant would provide the most cost effective way to continue our delivery of the Hunter’s Green Elementary Morning Show. Currently there are classrooms in the school that use laptops with a projector to teach, and do not have televisions. This grant would allow students to watch computer generated projections in their classrooms through a projector, alleviating the need to replace antiquated or broken televisions. Although not the primary reason, this grant also gives us the added benefit of providing on-the-go videos.

In order to allow the students to stream from mobile sites and edit, a laptop computer and a camcorder with wi-fi capability is required. The laptop needs to have enough memory to accommodate video editing and hard drive space for large video files. The camera requested in the grant is a GoPro camera that has a built in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capability.

How Project Benefits Students

A Morning Show provides more than just a way to make school announcements. It can be used as a mechanism to help students grow academically and make them feel engaged in school. Students audition to become members of the morning show. They try out for anchors, sound, camera, producers and directors. Through the morning show, students learn how to organize their thoughts, speak in front of the camera, and follow verbal and non-verbal directions for the show and edit video and sound. In turn, students in the classroom pay more attention to their peers telling them about school events.

As the school ages, some TV in the classroom are starting to fail but the pressure to fix those are not as great since many teachers now use their laptop/projector combo to deliver information within the classroom. Rather than replace the out dating, old worn out televisions or eliminate the Morning Show, we are looking to a streaming option that will allow the continuation of our Morning Show at a more reasonable delivery price. It would allow those students and teachers who do not have a TV in their room to have access to the Morning Show from their laptop/projector combo. Teachers can observe how students respond to using newer technology to absorb information. In addition, additional students could learn the role of “roving reporters” by utilizing the streaming technology to do “on-the-spot” interviews and capture more candid daily routines throughout the school. Live streaming therefore provides a method for students and teachers to feel more connected to the larger school community.1

Expected Outcome(s)

Our students come to the media center to prepare for the daily morning show. They produce and broadcast a show for the entire school! The students are the stars of the Morning Show and not only produce it but also write it, record it and edit it. They are truly devoted to digital journalism. If awarded the grant, my students will create additional segments to insert into the morning show and enrich the academic life of the students at the school.
