PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs: Building the Next Generation of Public Media
PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs (SRL) is a video journalism program in middle and high schools across the country. Join the founder and students to discuss the power of video journalism in education. We’ll go over the award-winning curriculum, research that shows impact on learning and student development, as well as how teens see the future of news. SRL tackles some of the nation’s most pressing topics such as: youth voting, fake news, immigration, disabilities, future of work, gender stereotypes, and the effect of race, poverty and inequality on opportunity in America. This year, the Labs are reporting on Election 2020, climate solvers, adolescent mental health and education. Student stories are distributed through partnerships and aired on local PBS stations and the "PBS NewsHour" nightly broadcasts – reaching a TV audience of more than 2.4 million a night. In this era of misinformation, polarization and distrust, SRL emphasizes collaboration, respect for multiple perspectives, efforts to understand complex forces in society and the search for truth.
