With high school basketball season beginning this week, it’s time to take a look at one of the things that goes on behind the scenes to help improve a couple of our athletic teams: videography. At each basketball game, a student videographer tapes the action and puts it on a DVD the following day. Coaches have a chance to review the game and make adjustments in practice as the season progresses. This service takes place not only during basketball season but also in the fall during football season where students have a bit more required of them. They upload the footage to an online video service called HUDL, making each game viewable from anywhere. They can then share the video with coaches from other teams, as required by the Iowa High School Athletic Association. Beyond the videography experience, these students are receiving real world technology skills in the classroom.
