From Inspiration to Implementation: Get Ready to Make Media Next School Year
Get ready, get set, then make media with your students this fall! Helping students communicate their learning or share their voice through media builds creativity, critical thinking and communication skills. In this workshop for K-12 educators, you'll get inspired by examples of student-made media then move through the steps to implement and assess a media-making project with your own students. You’ll also hear from a teacher who centers media storytelling in his classroom. Leave with standard-aligned ideas, modifiable resources and sample rubrics. Make this the year you make media in your classroom!

What Educators Have to Say

"I had been avoiding media projects because I wasn't comfortable, but now I’m looking forward to it. The lessons really walk you through the student experience, which is so effective." High School Librarian

"In the Video Production course, I made a short video which I showed to a fifth grade class. It was SO MUCH FUN! Their eyes were glued to the screen (an achievement to have such focus) and they responded thoughtfully and went on to write some amazing stories." —Elementary Teacher      

NAMLE selected KQED's Educator Certification for their 2022 Media Literate Media Award, which recognizes outstanding contributions to media literacy.
