Students experience television,
communication, and multimedia
Students find themselves in the midst of exciting changes in television,
communication, and multimedia. Uniquely embedded within Tenafly High
School's Library Media Center, broadcasting and video production
students get hands on experience working with a wide range of equipment.
They take part in daily decisions and become part of the exciting
dynamic found in live television broadcasting. Knowledge and experience
gained here will be beneficial no matter what career choice these
students make. Many students find their niche at THS-TV in front and
behind the camera.
We encourage our students to be the inventive and
visionary persons of the 21st century
Involved students experience the excitement of live broadcasts and
tapings of our school's events to include theatrical performances,
sports, classes, video conferences, special events and promotional
videotapes using professional broadcast equipment. Many events are
broadcast live from our television studio located in the center of the
library. Students learn about the technical and historical aspects
of television, a broadcast medium that rose out of the minds of
inventive and visionary persons early in the 20 century. This is the
only area of the school where students, under supervision, get hands on
experience with the latest in streaming video technology, digital video
editing, computer networking, graphics for television, imaging, and can
experiment with the undergoing convergence of television and computer
technology. We encourage our students to be the inventive and visionary
persons of the 21st century.
The best broadcasts must have respect and
good will as their central purpose
Students will experience what it is like to work behind and in front of
the camera in television. With broadcast equipment donated from several
television stations along with several grants from the T.E.F. and H.S.A.,
we have built a multi-use live television control room, chock full of
professional broadcast equipment with lots of buttons and gadgets. A
direct fiber optic transmission to Cablevision's head end allows for
broadcast to all Cablevision subscribers in Tenafly. All this is
uniquely and efficiently embedded into a large one time storage area
within our library media center complex.
Students become technically and / or
artistically involved and they have the opportunity to learn about
television production, refine their communication skills, and learn that
the best broadcasts must have respect and good will as their central
purpose. As media corporations all fight for an increasingly
fractionalized audience, this is a most important ethical lesson for
students to learn.
Students that belong to this learning
community form their own homeroom producing a “Morning Homeroom Program”
that all other homerooms, Tenafly residents, and visitors to this web
page can view.!
Meetings in the library occur frequently. Members that work on the
production of school events have free access. Active members can receive
special privileges. For more information see Mr. Di Gregorio, Mr. Moger,
or Mr. Garcia in the library.
