Photo essays are also a great entry point for media makers of all ages and across subject areas. In this workshop, hear from KQED’s photojournalist Beth LaBerge, get hands on starting your own model photo essay, and explore how a photo essay project could work in your learning environment.

Create space for students to bring their whole selves into your classroom with voice-only audio storytelling. Relatively easy to produce, this type of podcast strengthens writing, speaking, listening and language fluency, in addition to boosting confidence and centering student voice. In this workshop, we’ll create an audio essay from script to recording, hear from an educator who has used audio storytelling to promote deeper learning, and explore tools that make audio production possible in a range of learning environments. Finally, learn about how your middle and high school students can publish their work on KQED’s Youth Media Showcase and share their voice beyond the classroom.
