Donation provides needed upgrade to enhance student hand-on experience for media curriculum at Franklin High School
Franklin, MA (October 25, 2012) – Dean College School of Arts, in conjunction with Franklin TV, recently donated media production equipment to the Franklin High School media program in hopes of enhancing the hands-on experience Franklin High students have the opportunity to gain throughout their high school career.
With the rapid evolution of High Definition programming, Dean College saw an immediate need to upgrade their equipment, television studio and production center. High Definition equipment provides students in the Communications program at Dean College the most up-to-date experience needed to prepare for a career in media. This upgrade provided Dean the opportunity to donate the previous equipment to Franklin High School.
"Dean's cameras will help us fill a big void in our media curriculum," said Franklin High School Media Teacher Mr. Nick Bailey. "Our students will gain a much better understanding of how multi-camera studio programs are produced in real-time. There's nothing like practical, hands-on experience."
The donation was made possible and coordinated through Mr. Pete Fasciano, Executive Director of Franklin TV.
"Dean's equipment contribution could not have happened at a better time for us," said Fasciano. "We were looking to help Franklin High School with expanding their abilities, and Dean's studio cameras are exactly what we needed."
Dean College offers a two year Associates degree program in communications, as well as a four year Bachelors degree program in Arts and Entertainment Management.
