Share This Post

Recently there has been a big rise in the use of automated cameras to live stream high school sporting events. 

This means that students are being replaced in their live stream by automated cameras. We believe this is an incredible disservice to students who want to learn how to operate a camera.

Here are three ways students can be part of education-based live streaming in schools. 


Producing a live stream for your school’s die-hard sports fans isn’t an easy task. It requires many different jobs that have to work seamlessly together to produce a quality live stream. 

By letting students be involved in every aspect of live streaming, you are giving them an opportunity to grow their collaborative skills. Working within a team is a skill that is desired at almost every job. 

Team-based opportunities for students in school is much more difficult compared to math or English class. Integrating a team mentality into a digital media class with live streaming allows for more collaboration. Click here to learn more about how you can access a digital media curriculum.

Students Discover Passions

High school is a time in our lives when we start to figure out where our interests and passions lie. We must give students opportunities in every realm to discover their passions. 

By deploying automated cameras, you are taking the experience away from a student who might discover their love for camera operating. 

For some students, all it takes is one experience with commentating or a camera operating for a live stream, and they are hooked. Read more about Bridger Kroos and his journey into broadcasting games for Kenesaw.
