Use news as a teaching tool and learn to create your own short videos in this free, hands-on two-part workshop led by KQED Education staff. We’ll cover basic multimedia production skills, talk about how to inspire students to create their own pieces, and go over additional creative ways of integrating news into the classroom.  This training is perfect for high school social studies and language arts teachers looking for opportunities to keep up with the headlines and increase student engagement. The workshop will be held on two consecutive Thursday evenings: March 22 and March 29, from 5:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Participants must be available to attend both sessions.

Laptops and equipment provided (but BYOD if you wish); dinner included.

Dates: Two consecutive Thursdays – March 22 and March 29; both from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
