Unique Access to Learning
Goble, Don
Principal Leadership, v10 n3 p36-39 Nov 2009
This article describes the many learning opportunities that broadcast technology students at Ladue Horton Watkins High School in St. Louis, Missouri, experience because of their unique access to technology and methods of learning. Through scaffolding, stepladder techniques, and trial by fire, students learn to produce multiple television programs, develop amazing confidence in their abilities, and ultimately enhance their overall educational experience. Ladue's broadcast technology course aims to teach media literacy, overall broadcast writing, and production skills, as well as filmmaking techniques. Along the way, students learn lessons much greater than these. Through the creation of a student-produced live morning newscast, students learn about pressure, accuracy, organization, structure, failure, and success. By producing a monthly television program, they learn about deadlines, process, teamwork, and conquering tasks. In addition, students learn how to become leaders, deal with adversity, celebrate success, and tell powerful stories. (Contains 1 note.)
