Hands-on experience helps with learning

The Dysart Student Broadcast (DSB) Summer Media Camp launched this year and opened to middle-level students, completing grades sixth through eighth.

The one-week camp hosted at Willow Canyon High School featured field trips to State Farm Stadium and Huntington University.

Students created more than 20 videos with the help of Willow Canyon TV Production and DSB Live instructor Alyson Titkemeyer and Brian Yoder, coordinator of student broadcasting and multimedia productions. Sam Harris, a Willow Canyon junior in TV production, was also on hand to assist students and share his experience with the program.

At State Farm Stadium, students learned the technical aspects of live broadcasting. Students met with graphic designers, audio engineers and learned the gear that helps run live football broadcasts and other events at the stadium.

Participants toured Huntington to learn about the degrees offered in graphic design, animation, film and TV broadcasting. Students were also treated with hands-on experiences creating short scenes with graduates from the school.

At Willow Canyon, students learned how to use green-screen technology, create stop-motion animations, and in-camera trick photography.

The goal of the program is to introduce students to graphic design, animation, film, TV and broadcasting with the hope that they continue their education in those subjects in high school.

“It was a great opportunity for middle level students to have fun and explore their interests,” Titkemeyer said.

DSB Live is student-driven, student-produced and offers live stream broadcasts of school events free of charge to the community.

Students in grades nine through 12 at Dysart’s four high schools learn, develop and run every aspect of the show, including operating state-of-the-art cameras and TriCasters, creating commercials, being sound technicians, producers, graphic operators, on-field reporters and color commentators during sports broadcasts.

DSB Live’s network compliments the media pathways in Dysart’s Career and Technical Education (CTE) program, but is open to any student, regardless of if they are enrolled in CTE classes.

Students interested in participating should contact their high school broadcasting instructor or email brian.yoder@dysart.org.
