Ms. Smith's class was the first fifth grade class to participate in KGOE this year. One of the responsibilities of the KGOE participants it to create special reports for the school-wide broadcast. Special reports include interviews, book trailers and other media driven presentations that interest the students. Ms. Grindle, our school librarian, is instrumental in organizing KGOE and helping to make sure all students are successful with the technology. This group of students worked with Animoto, Bloggie cameras, and Windows Movie Maker and created many quality presentations that were shared through the school's morning news broadcast - KGOE.
The KGOE broadcast happens every morning in the Great Oaks library under the supervision and leadership of our awesome librarian, Clarissa Grindle, and her assistant, Susan Carpenter. Fifth grade students rotate through positions and get a chance to learn and do every task associated with putting on a quality production each day. Students show responsibility and teamwork by being on time each morning and afternoon for practice and rehearsals. This is a great way for Great Oaks students to get a taste of what it's like to be a part of a busy broadcast production team.
