Join Jonathan Hawke from Resn, creators of the online energy ball, for a fireside chat delving into some of the latest and more unconventional game control techniques.

H.B. Beal Secondary School has been the major technical secondary school in London, Ontario, Canada since the year 1912. In that time, Beal has established itself as being at the forefront of practical, hands-on education. The school has always welcomed those eager to learn, even those whom other schools discarded. For over 50 years, Beal has also been the leader in Broadcasting Education across Southwestern Ontario. However, recently, due to limited funding and an economy that is getting poorer and poorer, Beal’s broadcasting program, “BTV”, is falling behind. In order to prevent this, BTV is teaming up with local news station, Rogers TV, to create a show for youth, about youth, and produced by youth. This is quite exciting for the students enrolled in the program, but with funds being at their current level, the show seems due to fail. Both those at Beal and those at Rogers TV believe that this youth-oriented television show is vital to improving conditions in a city with a 9.1% unemployed rate (2% more than the Canadian average). At Beal, approximately 25% of the student population is high-risk, and almost 5% of the students live on their own (the highest across the school board). With tv segments that will talk about youth issues such as drug abuse, food preparation, and mental health issues, we believe that we can be a great aid to these students as well as youth all across the viewership.
Marc Lewis, pioneer of London’s new school dedicated to the art of advertising, will be joined by students in a look at the school’s innovative approach to learning. Students are mentored by award winners, a three year course is squeezed into one, and the focus is on ideas and creativity over execution.
