What You Will Learn
This first archive webinar explores how media literacy is incorporated through a variety of content standards — including the Common Core State Standards, the Next Generation Science Standards, and the Model School Library Standards — by focusing of the development of critical-thinking, problem-solving, and analytical skills using evidence-based inquires.
The session showcases KQED Learn, an online hub that serves secondary educators 6-12 with free and open digital content and tools focused on amplifying youth voice, making media, civic engagement, and real-world media literacy. KQED Learn is a resource for professional learning, cutting edge media-making and creativity tools and standards-aligned activities and content that encourage critical media consumption, thoughtful responses and inquiry and project-based learning across the curriculum.
Additionally, secondary classroom teacher reflects on how utilizing the “Discussions” and “Investigations” activities on KQED Learn supports secondary students with learning media literacy across disciplines.
