Panther News, 2012-2013

Students from grades 6-12, College Prep Academy, Raul Yzaguirre School for Success are particpating as newscasters for "Panther News". They are broadcasting "live" via the Web 2.0 tool, USTREAM twice a week (Mondays and Thursdays) from 8:05-8:10am (USA, CT). The premiere broadcast was on September 13, 2012.

The recorded version of the last broadcast can be accessed at PANTHER NEWS. Note: the live broadcast can be accessed at the same link on the day it is "on air".

This process is not only providing media literacy for the student team, but it is also enhancing their skills of collecting and assimilating information for public consumption, not to mention their skills of being able to articulate ("speak"). The fact that the student population is watching their peers "deliver the news" on a regular basis is creating an excitation/motivation factor of sorts. Hopefully, this "buzz" amongst the youth will lead to more "kinetic" involvement at RYSS. "Panther News" is a viable vehicle to nurture "school culture".
