Stanford University Department of Communication

Our academic sponsor is Jay Hamilton, Hearst Professor in the Department of Communication at Stanford University and director of the journalism program and undergraduate studies in communication.

Home of the undergraduate communications major and minor programs, the masters of arts in journalism, the joint law juris doctor and communication Ph.D. program and the Daniel Pearl and Rowland Rebele internships, Stanford’s communication department is where faculty and students study “the ways that communication techniques and technologies shape who we are, how we govern ourselves, and what kinds of cultures we inhabit.”

We’re proud to have the Stanford Department of Communication as part of our learning community, including Stanford students who serve as team leaders and judges for our students’ multimedia work each summer.

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. Click here for a showcase of SNO’s award-winning high school websites.

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  students have used iOgrapher cases intensively in the field, at music concerts, and for sports game coverage, among other events.
