How the concept “theBoltLive” was created….

It all started with the creation of CO Live. Co Live was one of the business projects started last school year in Mrs. Strycula’s Business Academy Capstone class.  The students in the class decided to encourage community and school pride by creating a YouTube broadcast channel named “Chargers Live,” which aired school/club activities, student honors/awards, classroom highlights, and interviews.  The podcasts ran about every 6-8 weeks.

This year the Business Academy Capstone class decided to continue the CO Live concept, but with a few modifications. In an exciting venture, CO Live has teamed up with Mrs. Wilcox’s journalism class to present a digital journal, complete with embedded video, sports scores, and up to date school activities/information.  The journalism class provides the stories and named their news service “The Bolt.” CO Live provides the tech support to create the layout and import content as well as video feed, marketing/promotional support, and school highlights. Combining these two concepts paved the way for the new platform:

This is an exciting project and a unique way to integrate the two classrooms.  Additionally, Mr. Parslow’s Graphic design class and Mr. Holguin’s photography class also provide support periodically, giving more students a way to engage in the project.  It is a dynamic site with content continually changing as new stories/update’s become available. So, check back regularly or sign up for notices of new content. We hope you enjoy the site!
