KQED is offering a variety of free trainings and professional learning opportunities this school year for Bay Area teachers to support the effective use of digital media in the classroom. From webinars to workshops, sign up for one or more free trainings to take full advantage of our extensive online media resources, and employ our customizable interactive lesson plans and other multimedia learning tools in the classroom.  On April 30, 2016 KQED will host a full day of learning in the KQED studio. Register here.

Each webinar (full schedule and topics below) is focused on a specific topic. Register for one or more free webinars and/or attend a hands-on training at your county office of education.
