Each student will be able to participate in the Morning Video Announcement production process as a listener, viewer, guest, writer, editor, producer, or news anchor.
Video Announcements scripted, filmed, and published by students can totally change school culture and build a positive school community. In addition to sharing the daily or weekly school “happenings,” fun and academic related segments can be included to involve students and teachers while fostering shared learning and commitment to school.
Start every morning or week with something that gets the students and teachers excited about school! Of course, the video announcements spread information and news throughout the building, but they also provide an opportunity for students to write, produce, listen and learn. As powerful and fun features are created and viewed by the school community, a sense of unity is generated and school values and energy spread like wildfire! A powerful ritual and tradition can be both born and celebrated!
