Tyler Consolidated graduation will be live-streamed on the internet
The broadcasting class at Tyler Consolidated High School is opening up the wide world of technology by bringing activities at the school to the general public, where ever in the world they may be, by computer.
In conjunction with the National Federation of State High School Associations, the broadcasting classes will begin live streaming of events at the school such as concerts, plays, sporting events, etc. on a regular basis next year when school begins. To kick off this program, Tyler Consolidated’s graduation ceremonies will be live streamed on Thursday night.
“This is something that will be an asset to the school, the community and the students in the broadcasting classes,” said advisor J.C. Kimble. “We will live stream as many events as we can, and some programming will be saved so they can be viewed again, or seen for the first time at a later date. This will benefit those family members and friends that live far away, or just are not able to get to the school for an event.”
In order to view the programming on the computer, one must go to the NFHS website, log in, and select the name of the school. The school’s available programming will be listed to choose from. (Editor’s note: We found it easier to search from yahoo.com or Google.com by typing “NFHS Tyler Consolidated” in the search area. The school page opened immediately and the programming choices were readily available.)
At present time, though the program is set up and ready to go, no programs to view are on the Tyler Consolidated web site. The debut program will be the graduation exercises on Thursday at 7 p.m.
The NFHS is the national leadership organization for high school sports and performing arts activities.
