How can Varsity News Network better prepare students to succeed?
Varsity News Network isn’t your parent’s high school newspaper.
The field of online media is changing at record pace, and many schools are struggling to keep up. As progressively more industries transition online, educators are faced with the task of preparing students with the skills, experience and resources needed to succeed in this digital world.
Varsity News Network is an online laboratory in which students at your school gain the most relevant skills in fields including journalism, videography, marketing and web-design, on a web platform similar to those used in college and beyond.
Because of the web-traffic funneled to your site through VNN’s network of websites, your students’ work will be seen by thousands of people in your local community. In addition to the educational value of real-world feedback, this exposure can also lead to opportunities.
As the world continues to transition to the Internet, skills in online media are more important now than ever before. Working with Varsity News Network gives your students the opportunity to develop those skills, while gaining first-hand experience in online media.
How does Varsity News Network improve the high school athletic experience?
Varsity News Network makes it simple to have the best athletic website around.
If your high school sports team isn’t regularly featured in the local paper, you’re not alone. As the newspaper industry changes, high school sports receive less and less coverage, particularly in sports other than football and boys basketball.
94% of high school athletes will not play competitive sports in college. Their entire athletic career happens during these four years, and they should be celebrated by more than just a box-score.
Using the latest web technologies like YouTube, Blogger, Facebook and others, you can increase the amount of positive press coverage enjoyed by student athletes at your school. But these technologies are often complicated, and are spread out all over the Internet.
Varsity News Network makes celebrating athletic accomplishments easy by streamlining all of these technologies on one simple to use platform, which means you’ll actually use it. Meanwhile, VNN’s network of sports websites increases exposure for athletes at your school by funneling high school sports fans, scouts and players to your custom designed athletic website.
High school athletes are receiving less and less media coverage, but thanks to Internet technology we now have the ability to change that. Varsity News Network makes it easy to manage your own dynamic sports website, and in doing so makes being a high school athlete at your school just a little bit cooler.
