Learning about school news and current events is wonderful, but being an essential part of the communication, editing, and publishing of information, on a weekly basis, is a prideful moment.
Each week the Georgia Innovation Lab broadcasts GEMS TV Express!
It is a weekly newscast that provides upcoming school events, student recognition, and celebrations, along with all the wonderful learning experiences that are occurring across the elementary school.
Middle school students work collaboratively with Elementary students to produce a high quality, informative, and entertaining news broadcast that is aired weekly for all student classrooms Pk-4.
Through close facilitation and coaching, the innovation lab staff (Dayle Payne and Eric Hadd) guide students in their rehearsal, production, and editing of every final product.
Students take ownership, are thoroughly engaged, problem-solve continuously while communicating effectively and are building upon transferable skills for life. It is real-world learning that is taking place each week with phenomenal results of the final product created.
Elementary students viewing the news feed are excited each week and look forward to the upcoming broadcast. The following quotes were taken from Elementary students:
“I love seeing my friends”
“This is awesome”
“Look! That’s me”
We all wait patiently anticipating what will be in our next GEMS TV Express.
Until next time…
