The success of EDTV is based on a collaborative effort put forth by a core group of 8 individuals along with student interns working toward a common goal of providing the schools and community with informative, entertaining and quality productions.
Each member of the EDTV crew looks to one another for ideas and inspiration in an effort to create the best video productions for our teachers, students and families in the Plymouth Community and beyond.
The EDTV team combines creative, technical and strategic talents in a positive atmosphere that encourages students to think, grow and expand their skills in video production.
EDTV productions can be seen in a variety of venues via social media, television, websites and online video. Follow our social media platforms to stay informed and up to date on our latest productions.
