Moscow's School TV Stars
1 “Moscow educational” is an Internet TV channel which was founded in September, 2015. On the channel, you can find different educational programmes, media and resources. Its audience is large and includes everyone from pupils, parents, grandparents, teachers, headmasters and residents of other cities and towns in Russia. The arrangement of its programmes allows viewers to watch them at any convenient time. There are no adverts and you can enjoy interesting programmes without any interruptions.
2 Certainly, it is interesting to watch programmes on this channel, but it’s much more entertaining to take part in creating the programmes as well. The Children’s Television Educational Centre has been working in Moscow since 1995 to enable students to create their own TV programmes. The centre has everything needed to teach pupils how to make films: up-to-date filmmaking and mounting equipment, as well as studios and computer classes. At this centre, students, together with certified teachers, can create interesting stories, TV programmes, cartoons, clips and TV plays. Also, students can learn the basics of cinematography, photography, online journalism, computer editing and stage direction. What’s more, they learn how to work on stage and take part in talk-shows.
3 Some Moscow schools have opened their own TV studios as well. The students at these schools - the young reporters, hosts and editors - learn how to develop, film, edit and create video clips and programmes about their school life, teachers and classmates. Any news, interviews, documentaries, cartoons and music clips created by students are broadcast on “Moscow educational” Internet TV channel.
4 Students’ involvement in making TV programmes helps them develop their creativity and communication skills as well as gives them an idea of what TV journalism is about. These experiences help students choose their future profession more wisely.
