Turner Broadcasting trains Boston students in new media technology

Mayor Menino and Boston Public Schools officials today announced a new partnership with Turner Broadcasting System, Inc., to provide Boston high school students with training in new technology created by Turner to webcast sporting events and other live activities. Media Communications Technology High School in the West Roxbury Education Complex is the pilot site for the project, which will be expanded to other schools during the three-year partnership. Students and teachers from Media High participated in intensive training in Turner's "PlayON!" technology before covering their first event, a recent high school football game at White Stadium. Students also directed and filmed the news conference announcing the partnership at their school. Pictured here, senior Brandon Harrington operates a camera at the event.
