KQED Education is looking for science educators to participate in a study of our online professional development materials. These online training modules are designed to teach educators how to use and create media in their secondary science classrooms. We would like to refine and expand these online training offerings, and need your feedback to do so!
Who are we looking for?
Middle and high school science teachers, after school/informal STEM/science educators, and homeschool educators interested in using and creating media in the classroom.
Prior experience creating media is not necessary, but it is recommended that you have some experience with the following skills:
- save, copy, manipulate and move files and folders
- move text and graphics between applications, play audio and video in a multimedia player
- download and upload files (documents, photos, video) from and to websites
- manipulate photos from a digital camera (save on computer, use basic photo editing to crop, correct brightness)
- scan and save documents as images
What will participation require?
Participants will be asked to do two activities:
- complete an online training module at home (approx. 4 hours) which will need to be completed on your own time August 7-13
- participate in a virtual/online focus group from your home (approx. 1 hour). These groups will be scheduled to take place August 14-18
