One Button Studio @ MNMS

Any student or teacher is able to create studio quality video using a new One Button Studio (OBS) recently launched at Mount Nittany Middle School. The One Button Studio technology, developed at Penn State University, combines lights, camera and action into a single button. A first for the State College Area School District, the OBS enables teachers to engage students in new ways across all areas of the curriculum. According to MNMS Principal, Brian Ishler, “This technology will help our students innovate their learning outcomes.”

MNMS Students try out the OBS green screen.

Teachers like Madame Helmrich see this as a new way for students to actively participate in creating course content. She feels, “The OBS is a great resource to transport students to the French speaking world! By using the green screen capabilities, students can "visit, " and capture their communication about places of curricular importance.”

“OBS is cool technology. Students and teachers are having fun. Having this technology in place transforms learning experience. It brings their learning to life!”

“Quality videos make the students more active in their viewing. OBS gives us the confidence to create high quality videos to use with our students.”

Using the OBS, teachers can develop high quality, engaging content.

The studio, placed in the Mount Nittany Middle School library, capitalizes on the collaborative, high visibility, space that libraries naturally offer.
