Making Media Manageable


Date: November 26, 2013

Time: 8:00 – 9:00 pm EDT

Description: Making media with students is an exciting opportunity to explore a variety of literacies and modes of communication. But the idea of producing media texts with students can also be stressful for teachers, and the results can sometimes be less that stellar. Regardless of the medium chosen, a streamlined production process will make a difference in the success of your media project. This web event will outline an effective media production process, including tools and scaffolding for students and teachers for each step in the process.
