Bring Media Literacy and Media Making to Your Teaching
1st June 2022 @ 8:00 am - 31st July 2022 @ 5:00 pm BST
In a push-back against people who can’t tell a real news source from an amphetamine-laden hamster with a Tumblr blog, San Francisco public radio station KQED this week announced it is launching a free workshop and self-paced online course to help increase media literacy. The resources are aimed at K-12 educators and other folks who are involved with teaching media, but are freely available to other fans of media nerdery and enemies of fake news alike.
Completing the course results in a PBS Media Literacy Educator micro-credential, which is a step toward getting the full Media Literacy Educator Certificaton, which is a set of eight micro-credentials spanning a range of media creation and analysis topics.
