High-Tech Wrestling Invite

The O'Neill Wrestling Invitational was held on Saturday, December 6, and evidence of technology use was everywhere! Students captured the images of the meet on digital cameras and periodically transferred them to a MacBook which Mr. Corkle and the janitors rigged up to be projected on the gym wall. All day long Douglas Stahlecker added photos to a continuous slideshow for fans and athletes to enjoy. In addition, Douglas used ichat to get updates on the results and team standings to add into his projected iMovie. During the finals, Gary Hostert and OHS alum Jess Fernau teamed up with Mike Peterson to share the action via ustream. A newly discovered feature of picture-in-picture allowed for the sports broadcast to showcase more than one mat at a time. Congratulations, O'Neill High School, for not only winning the wrestling meet, but also for using technology in innovative ways!
