Digital Media Center
Welcome to KQED's Digital Media Center, the place to explore, create and showcase media for and by the community. KQED strives to engage you in the media production process with community and educator trainings, tools, content, and outreach. As part of our community, we hope you will help us build this innovative and creative Digital Media Center. This space will grow and change with our collective creativity.

On June 1 & 2, the Bay Area Youth Media Network (BAYMN) in partnership with KQED will present BAYMN FEST, a free two-day
interactive showcase of media produced by young folks ages 12-24, hosted at the San Francisco Public Library.
Foster independent thinking and 21st century literacy skills with KQED Media Literacy resources. The ability to think critically about the powerful images, words, sounds, and messages that saturate contemporary culture increases students' chance of success in and outside of the classroom.
Through workshops, and in-class materials and programs, encourage your students to ask key questions about who creates media messages -- why? and to what effect?
Help students of all ages find, tell, create, and publish the stories of their lives with Digital Storytelling activities. Through hands-on training in multimedia production and story theory, educators and community members can guide the creation of compelling and authentic digital stories within a learning environment.
Digital stories can lead students and community members to discover first-hand how narrative education can provide knowledge and inspiration. By creating their own media projects, storytellers can also develop important critical thinking skills that help them interpret 21st century culture.
