Today's Cool School is North Vermilion Middle School!
Eighth graders at the school are able to take a Digital Media Elective. This year, the students have been putting together a newscast for each month.
They'll recap all of the different activities, highlight a teacher, recap the sports scores, highlight upcoming events, and even a brief weather forecast!
The students write the scripts, video and edit all of their own stories. Some practice using different camera equipment and techniques. And have mastered the use of tripods, audio equipment and green screens!
In our ever increasing digital world, this class allows students to find what role they're best at!
