iAm Ladue Rises Quickly on the HEC-TV Charts

Design of a shooting star

With only two editions completed, iAm Ladue is the #1 Top Collection of all HEC-TV shows. In addition, the second show submitted has become the second-most downloaded shown on HEC-TV.

Each month, two of the Ladue Broadcast Technology department’s televisions shows, the student-produced Ladue View and the district communications program Ladue Schools Today, are combined into a one-hour television show called iAm Ladue. See the first edition of iAm Ladue.

The second show submitted includes a Ladue Schools Today edition regarding the district’s pursuit of a One-to-One Learning Initiative and features Assistant Superintendent for Teaching and Learning Dr. Donna Jahnke and Director of Information Technology Services Rob Highfill. In this segment, Dr. Jahnke and Mr. Highfill discuss the purpose behind providing a laptop computer to every high school student and includes endorsements for the program from Ladue Horton Watkins High School Principal Dr. Bridget Hermann and Ladue Education Foundation Treasurer Julie LaBonte.

Each month, Broadcast Technology teachers Don Goble and Marteana Davidson, along with a student host, introduce the two shows to bring to the community one collective Ladue Schools effort as a new program of HEC-TV’s. The Ladue School District is the first high school to have this form of partnership with HEC-TV.

Just last spring, HEC-TV and FOX2 partnered to share Channel 2 on the digital dial. iAm Ladue appears monthly on channel 2.2. This is a great opportunity for Ladue Schools students and the district to deliver positive news about Ladue to the St. Louis community. In addition, the show is also available to 600,000 subscribers per month, who download or stream their programming through iTunes. iAm Ladue is also available through iTunes with this partnership.
