Check out the new KQED Media Academy for Educators, offering free, online, instructor-led courses and certificates of completion year-round.

KQED Teach facilitated courses are like an online PD bootcamp.  KQED Teach self-paced courses are always online for free, but these one-week sessions provide daily email prompts that help you commit to and complete the process of learning media-making skills you can then integrate into your teaching.

Each week-long course takes about 15-30 min/day to complete. You can do that work whenever it fits in your schedule. And, at the end, you will have created evidence that can support applying for a micro-credential that leads to PBS Media Literacy Educator Certification.

Sign up for a free, facilitated course now.
