TV/Radio is an exciting, technology-rich option that exposes students to a variety of multimedia applications. Students are taught concepts related to media awareness, animation, photography, video production, editing and podcasting.
TV/Radio takes advantage of a wide array of equipment in order to reinforce concepts through hands-on group projects. Currently, TV/Radio students have access to the following: 10 Apple workstations running a suite of multimedia software, digital video cameras, digital still cameras, a green screen, tripods, wireless mics and a sound mixing board.
TV/Radio students often create short video productions for various events in the school. Creativity, experimentation and cooperation are strongly encouraged.
At Simpson staff and students use technology where it is appropriate throughout the school day. All classrooms are equipped with interactive smartboards, and students can be assigned computers as needed from our four mobile chromebook carts. In addition, there are dedicated class sets of chromebooks for special needs classes, and both chromebooks and iPads are available in the library. We also maintain a dedicated PC lab, with 30 Windows 10 computers that are in regular use during the day, and available for independent student use at lunchtime.
