Today our principal, Mr. Spencer, addressed all of our students simultaneously by broadcasting his Constitution Day message using ustream.tv. In the past, Mr. Spencer would spend the day moving from class to class delivering his message a total of 12 different times. By streaming his message live over the internet, he was able to address all of our students with one broadcast.
Several steps were involved in setting up this internet broadcast including the set up our free ustream account. Finding the right combination of Webcam and microphone was a challenge but worth the effort since sound and video were both quite nice for our students. It also required a coordinated effort from our teachers to prepare their rooms to project the broadcast and run audio through our phonic ear speaker system.
I was very impressed with the quality of the presentation and the student's attentiveness. My kudos to everyone involved.
