Impact: How might this idea positively impact the social and emotional well being of students/our school? What can be done to increase the impact of this idea?
Like how I say it and also my parents which is there is always room for improvement. So this means that in streams like spoken word it can help those people to see what they could’ve done better so that if they are a grade 11 and going to grade 12 the year after they would know exactly what to do for the best possible chances etc. This is the same for high level soccer etc. It will positively impact for the students because their parents can see it too if they aren’t able to make it and show it to their grandparents too to show their great achievements of the year because only the top speakers are chosen. Since we are streaming all the large events it would be very nice and better to have a better mic for some occasions and also camera with better quality (more pixels) to make it look better since the Red Surge steam the camera quality was not the best.
Desirability: What could you change to make this idea more desirable to students, teachers, administrators, parents or the community?
A few things that would make it more desirable for students is having a better platform to advertise the streams on because the YouTube channel is well… lets just say a bit dead and not that active with not many people looking at it like Instagram and other apps since people use them all the time for new updates and such. Also like above the camera quality. With better camera quality it could make it more desirable for students, teachers, admins and parents to watch it because a lot of times the bad camera quality ruins the watch ability and moves those people away from the video/stream because after awhile it hurts their eyes and they just cant watch it anymore. (Just imagine watching a video at 144p)
Integratability: What would you change to make this idea easier to integrate into a school setting? How can we keep it from being seen as an “add-on”?
Some ways would be the teachers showing it in their class because its English being spoken by the top people in the school so this here is showing a good example to the other students that are maybe not so good at English and helps them with their English vocabulary which will make the school look better. The streams turn into videos after the stream ends so this means it could be used as a possible vocab sheet for yourself from taking key words from the presentation and to be able to use it in your own presentation. Because even if you are there watching you might not remember much so this would be a perfect reminder to go back to get more info. 1 more is having the social media team to post it on Instagram to be able to help advertise it earlier so that we have a better chance to get more views to show the importance of the stream which can be used as a reminder for past times for yourself to show how much you have improved over time.
Feasibility/Viability: What would you change to make this idea more feasible or viable? Think: e.g lower the cost, make it more sustainable, make it easier to implement etc.
Well first of all the main issue is the schedule for it. We need enough time ahead to be able to setup and to get ready for it because some events that I wont name. We were given less then 24 hours to prep which is not enough time because we don’t have enough time to get everything we need. Also sustainability would be having even more trained people because just doing it with a small group can be hard sometimes because sometimes we don’t have people available and if we don’t have anyone there to record it wont go that well. Like Red Surge when we didn’t have someone on Saturday so it didn’t look nice at all compared to Friday with people there.
a) Briefly describe your new and improved idea, by incorporating ideas and/or feedback.
Well some of the simple and main ideas would be to have communication with the social media team right here and there. Also with feedback and such since we had bits of positive feedback it would be better to have better equipment since as the school tech gets better it feels like our streaming gear is not going anywhere. Anything to help raise the quality of the stream so this could be even having a mic stationed somewhere closer to the game or speaker to have better quality since a lot of times the stream can just hear us with lots of muffing from all the loud sounds around and not the actual game.
b) Answer the following questions:
– What problems might we run into?
Well since getting equipment has an expensive price tag to it and the organization it takes to be able to get everything going. With all the extra equipment it would take a lot more time to setup and maintain because if something isn’t near us or we are not paying attention to it some could steal it putting is in a bad spot because equipment being stolen isn’t something that we want.
– What skills do we need to complete this project? How can we attain these skills?
This would be mainly communication and proper moderation of the equipment which means someone will have to be there but at the same time to be able to troubleshoot these issues if a piece of equipment goes wrong and has a malfunction
c) Create a brief timeline of key things that need to happen to ensure successful completion of your project. What happens next?
Since a lot of times streams are a pop up and a lot of it depends on the school budget because all of the new equipment it could be very costly. Once we get a date of what to stream we get everything ready to stream with meetings and so that everyone is up to date to see what we can do better next. hopefully we can get all of the equipment and everything that we need by the end of this school year
