Barnstable Intermediate School
The after-school BIS Broadcasting Club would like to buy some equipment to help bring news, events and happenings to ALL students at our school. Students will act as reporters, videographers, film editors, graphic designers, music technicians and producers to create content.
How will the project be evaluated (e.g. how will you gauge its success)
The goal of our club is to create informative content for a real audience and we will utilize platforms such as YouTube for production videos, social media sites (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter) for graphic design, and new this year we hope to create a podcast using an RSS feed.
Benefit to the students and the school
We would like to try LIVE broadcasting capabilities within our school to share out morning announcements from time to time. Being able to communicate news and events within our building to the student body in a timely fashion will foster the sense of community we strive for here at BIS.
Timeline of Project (when will you do the project, if applicable)
Our club begins October 1st. We aim to record a podcast weekly or bi-weekly and to team up with Cape Cod Broadcasting to share our podcast with a real audience.
