unnamed (2)

Daktronics (NASDAQ-DAKT) of Brookings, South Dakota, has released DakClassroom, a detailed event and game-day production guide that helps educators build their programs from the ground up using a curriculum aligned with career and technical education (CTE). This allows students to learn technical terminology and understand the equipment with which they are working in a hands-on capacity at the high school level.

“The benefits of DakClassroom are realized at both the teacher and student level, not to mention those watching on game day,” said Faith Gustafson, Daktronics services supervisor. “Teachers receive the training that helps them prepare their students, students gain a wealth of experience and knowledge within the technology and production realm, and everyone at the live event gets to see all their hard work while enjoying the game.”

Aimed at providing real-world educational opportunities, DakClassroom was designed with teacher guides, lesson plans, interactive simulations and member-exclusive videos. These tools help teach educators how to instruct their students while providing students with work experience that they can use throughout their high school days as well as into the college and university level and even into their professional careers.

“The students aren’t only running the show, they are creating and following scripts, producing graphics and videos, hosting photo and video shoots to gather content, approaching local businesses to sell advertising opportunities, and so much more!” added Gustafson. “DakClassroom helps lead all of these tasks and train students along the way. Then during the event, they get to see all of their hard work pay off.”

Additional support groups and materials are available upon signing up for a membership, including access to the Daktronics Annual Video Summit, exclusive online user groups, certificates of completion, showcase awards to students and classes, and access to Daktronics Crew Connect for students looking to take the next step.
