Learn how to use the latest free resources from KQED Education to boost collaborative inquiry and media literacy in the classroom. Join us at the California Charter Schools Leadership Update Conference on December 10-11, 2018 at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis. This conference is where over a thousand charter school directors, CFOs, COOs, board members, lead teachers, developers and service providers gather to receive and discuss timely updates regarding critical issues relating to charter school policies.
Visit KQED at table #40 and attend our session “Collaborative Inquiry in Connected Classrooms” to learn about our free resources for inquiry learning. Find out more below!
KQED Learn is our free online space for student inquiry. On this site, middle and high school students begin their inquiry process with our award-winning video series Above the Noise. Then, they discuss current issues and research topics that matter to them by creating media pieces to showcase their learning. KQED Learn offers an engaging alternative to the traditional research assignment, allowing students to practice both academic and media literacy skills.
KQED Teach is our hands-on professional learning platform where teachers can take free, online courses on media literacy and production. Teachers learn by doing, practicing media-making skills alongside other educators, and come away knowing how to apply their new skills to the classroom with lesson plans and other supports. Teachers can learn how to podcast, make infographics, develop a classroom blog and more!
