OC03SVN MEDIA SKILLS includes lesson plans, curriculum, and projects which educators can use to supplement their classroom or studio materials.

In many cases, teachers who with little or no TV production experience or training are being put in the role of creating not just a curriculum, but in some cases an entire production facility. The primary goal is to give instructors the resources which will expose, train and nurture an on-going technical competence and understanding in those students that demonstrate an aptitude and interest in TV production as a possible career after graduation.

With most of the content in SVN MEDIA SKILLS we have strived to include related material, both reading and video content, that will expand a students' knowledge or experience base. Either in the form of articles or mini-projects or video tutorials developed by educators or industry professionals, these are all readily available to you and your students. All text material can be printed out for classroom hand-out use.
