Whether you’re looking to produce live or pre-recorded school TV newscasts, sporting events, assemblies or graduations, WireCast is the affordable video production tool to get the job done on Windows or Mac! Learn the secrets behind how Amherst Middle Tech TV has used WireCast and evolved into a nationally recognized school TV program.  Since 2004, students have produced live broadcasts using common school equipment that rival network news programming. Topics covered in this workshop include choosing hardware such as computers, microphones, cameras, lighting and greenscreen options, as well as organizing your school TV club for maximum efficiency.

Game-based student response systems (a.k.a. “clickers”) are increasingly becoming a popular technology tool to engage students in classroom activities. However their high cost and steep learning curve prevent many classrooms from utilizing this exciting technology. Learn how online tools like Socrative and Kahoot aim to change all of this! Socrative and Kahoot are free web-based student response systems that run on ANY device with a web browser. See how you can use tablets, smartphones, Chromebooks or laptops as “clickers” instead of investing in the more traditional one-purpose only hardware devices on the market. Please BYOD (bring your own device) and join us for some fun demonstrations of Socrative and Kahoot!
