HIKI NŌ - Facing the Future | Full Program
Airdate: Thursday, Jan. 15, 7:30 pm
This half-hour documentary by filmmaker Stuart Yamane examines a new phase in the
evolution of the nation's first statewide student news network. Four
years after the launch of HIKI NŌ, a new dream has transpired: to develop
HIKI NŌ as a sanctioned class within Hawaii's statewide school system, and
into a curriculum available to public, private and charter schools. Thanks to
funding from the Stupski Family Fund of the Hawaii Community Foundation, PBS
Hawaii has the resources needed to realize this dream. Teachers, students,
curriculum developers, education evaluators, media professionals and leaders
from the Department of Education and PBS Hawaii share their vision for what
this new curriculum will look like and how it will work – charting a course
into a new education frontier.
This program encores Saturday, Jan. 17 at 12:30 pm and Sunday, Jan. 18 at 3:00 pm. You can also view HIKI NŌ episodes on our website, www.pbshawaii.org/hikino.
