PVJH Students Try Their Hand at Newscasting in New Production Room

Students out at PVJH have been introduced to a new space in the library: their very own Production Room! After applying for a grant to purchase materials for green screen production, students now have access to a room filled with a green screen, microphones, an anchor desk, lights, and iPads with the free app TouchCast for making their own newscasts and other projects.

The room is open to any class project that could utilize filming or recording, including on screen newscasting or podcasting.

Instructional Coach Cassidy Peterson and Librarian Anita Roche wanted to create the space as a way to encourage a student centered learning environment, and to show students the benefit of working in the library.

Some of the first students to use the Production Room have done a variety of projects, from¬†researching news roles, writing original scripts, researching on air delivery methods, and much more! A group even got to visit KWQC TV6 News to meet news professionals and see how they perform their tasks.¬† We can’t wait to see the awesome projects that come out of the PVJH Production Room for 2019!
