Last year we had the Beeb in to do it. This year we just did one in house and broadcast it live across the school network. As always we had a nightmare getting it set up, but it all worked okay at broadcast time!! The unfortunate thing was only 3 teachers 'tuned' in with their classes to watch it, those in for early lunch had no choice as we showed it in our canteen as well - that got the viewing figures up!
Good experince for the kids, and good experience for us to!!
Easy enough, I had the how to from here last year when we wanted to broadcast our official opening. We use Windows Media Encoder on a PC and then send it to a server running Media Services. I used a cheap Genius Mic for the audio and a bog standard video camera into a wintv card for the video.
I'm in Maesteg, not too far from you if you wanted a look?
Is that the new Welsh school? If it is I was going to apply for the ICT job there but must have missed it somewhere.
Isn't the Headteacher an ex Head of ICT?
Wyt ti'n siarad Cymraeg?
Na, Ysgol Saesneg. W'nes I lefel a Cymraeg ail iaith tua un deg chwech blynwydd yn ol - My Welsh is very rusty now though!
We're the new PFI school, the Welsh school (Ysgol Gyfun Llangynwyd) is our old upper school site. The head there is very IT literate so you could well be right about him!
The school is growing year by year - started with just year 7 and now has years 7 & 8 - so there's a good chance there'll be more IT jobs in the future!
We ran this today as well. Went really well bar a few technical hitches. We have so far sent out 25GB of data out from our website and 5633 page views. The whole school tuned in at 2:30pm to watch it. Going to add some pictures that a 6th former took tomorrow.
Have to say we wouldn't have been able to do it without Joe at CPLTD helping us out with some equipment. Joe lent us some hand held video cameras, pretty sure Simon can put a link on at some point, (I'm at home and can't remember the model number)
They provided some really good quality video.

I dont know. My contract clearly states "I have no contact with kids", as part of the wages review and I questioned it at the time. I was told my pay does not include this and it wouldnt be added as this would increase my wage.
This unfortunatly means this type of work is for teaching assistants, whom I will happily train to use.
