Middle School Students Turn Classroom Into TV Studio: Munich International School Goes Live with BoinxTV

Puchheim, Germany - March 17, 2011 - Boinx Software's live-video production software, BoinxTV, is changing the face of after school activities at the Munich International School (MIS). Used during a new after school program called TV News Station, BoinxTV has become a hit with a group of MIS Middle School students who call themselves MIS Live. Gathering together facts, pictures, events, interviews, and information from around the MIS campus community, the students write and edit scripts, cut movies and produce their own live TV news program via BoinxTV. They cover everything from class field trips to sports, school gossip and the latest tech gadgets on campus, and deliver the news straight to their peers in weekly broadcasts. BoinxTV is a piece of software that allows for the creativity of every child, says Pia Druggan, IT Integration Specialist, MIS Middle School. The great thing about BoinxTV is that it gives students the same look and feel of CNN or BBC. If you have a story to tell and it could look and feel like a news story, BoinxTV is the perfect platform to use.

Hear more about MIS Live and BoinxTV in an interview with the team’s members: here

To make each MIS Live broadcast a success, the students must work together to complete their assignments and overcome the many hurdles of live TV. They not only learn the "big picture" of TV production and live broadcast software, but also the advantages of working as a team and the importance of relationship building. BoinxTV is a brilliant tool for education, says Oliver Breidenbach, CEO, Boinx Software. Expressing yourself in and mastering the production of video has become a whole new dimension of learning and creativity, which is slowly integrating itself in the curricula of schools around the world. It has become a new and essential skill for students in the 21st century.
