Lights. Camera. Action!
The Newsroom

Skills for learning, life and the world of work

Produce a news segment to broadcast!

Brought to you live from the classroom… students research and report on various breaking news topics from up-to-date news sources (or more specifically towards a certain inquiry topic).
Can the news crews meet the deadline and produce a gripping new story?

The Newsroom is a project based learning experience with emphasis on students developing teamwork, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity, communication, digital literacy and presentation skills.
