“Back to school” at the Media Center means LIVE cablecasts every morning from many of the schools in our service area. Every week more schools are come into our master control console over the I-NET. We can then transmit that signal live or record it for delayed palyback. What does all this mean?
It means we can get connected to the most important people in our community: our kids. As parents or concerned adults we can tune in and see if there is a need in our schools that we can fill. We can also sit back and be entertained by these broadcast journalism students developing their skills. The real life experience of going “live” at a certain time and to adhere to certain broadcast standards is fantastic training for our kids.
Today, Paly High joined the ranks of the Fall 2010 YBC line up. Other schools that are already broadcasting as well are Hillview and Oak Knoll, both of Menlo Park. We look forward to bringing on Jordan sometime this week and Gunn next week. JLS and Encinal and La Entrada are all getting their students ready to go live something this month, so stay tuned.
Just type YBC into our schedules pages to see what’s up next!
