Your Cart is Empty

your students turn into news presenters and reporters to create their very own TV news service!


An information pack is sent to the school with some pre-workshop lessons that need to be delivered before the workshop day. These lessons cover topics such as "how to develop a storyline and script". Schools may also wish students to pre-record any "on-location" reports using a video camera that can be then imported into the production on the workshop day.

During the workshop day students will be involved in:

  • Learning to use the hardware and software provided (all equipment will be provided on the day)
  • Shooting and editing their news report

Points to Note

  • Students will need to work in groups of 2 or 3 students on the workshop day and complete one production between each group. The maximum number for the workshop is 30 students. (All equipment will be supplied on the day for students to use).
  • Ideally students should develop a news story that covers a topic being studied in class.

After participating in this workshop students will be able to:

  • Create a storyline and script for a news report
  • Develop their speaking and presentation skills
  • Shoot and edit a news story using the software and iPads provided
  • The Newsmaker Student Workshop is neither grade-level specific nor content-area specific. It will help students improve their communication skills whilst mastering content in any subject area.

At the conclusion of the workshop students will receive a certificate of participation with instructions on how they can view/download their project on our private/secure server.
