Maximizing Podcasting and Videography Opportunities in the Community Using Smartphones.

Mashpee Middle High School

Project Description
In an effort to increase access to media curriculum, learning opportunities and community engagement, I would like to capitalize on the availability of smartphones by providing supplemental equipment that will allow students to capture broadcast quality video and audio anywhere with ease.

How will the project be evaluated (e.g. how will you gauge its success)
This project will be successful when we are able to program Mashpee TV’s educational channel (22) with high-quality student-driven and produced programming and bring a news show to MMHS that will be aired in classrooms.

Benefit to the students and the school
With this equipment, students will have the capability to film community events to air on Mashpee TV and upload to YouTube. In addition, this year, the A/V Club would like to collaborate with the Journalism Club to increase student involvement and community engagement; this equipment would enable students to create programming for a high school news show outside of school.

Timeline of Project (when will you do the project, if applicable)
This project will be ongoing throughout the school year and the equipment will be used for many years to come.
