Stanford News Service
Our academic sponsor is the Stanford News Service, part of the Office of University Communications. It provides assistance to reporters and covers much of the university’s news via the daily digital Stanford Report. The news service also helps to publicize and handle media relations for major events, provides media training for key faculty and administrators and serves as a liaison between scholars and media outlets. We’re proud to have the Stanford News Service as part of our learning community.
Based on WordPress, SNO websites give their users design tools to fully customize their website without needing to touch a line of code. With a homepage built entirely out of drag and drop widgets, and each widget having more than a dozen configurable options, including colors and widget styles, each news staff can create a website that fits its own personality and needs. SNO sites have all the features and tools a scholastic journalism site needs — including the ability to post slideshows, videos, podcasts, polls and more. At NBTB, students work in teams to create their own websites, using their choice of SNO’s highly flexible designs and building WordPress and digital literacy.

The iOgrapher Mobile Media Case for iPad Mini is the first all-purpose filmmaking case for the iPad Mini. Made from high-grade polycarbonate, the tough, durable iOgrapher case enables students to handle their iPads safely and flexibly, and to work quickly and capably in a wide array of shooting environments. Lenses, lighting, audio gear and tripods can easily be attached to the case, creating instant video setups that allow students to focus on developing video and broadcast skills. NBTB 2014 students used iOgrapher cases intensively during our 2014 session in the field, at music concerts, and for sports game coverage, among other events. We’re proud to have iOgrapher as a sponsor.
