Thinking and Making with Media in PreK-2 Classrooms

Course Description:

Intentional and developmentally-appropriate use of media provides children with new pathways to develop the critical skills of inquiry and expression that they will use as life-long learners. This course offers examples and insights from the classroom on how to actively integrate media into playful, hands-on learning, as well as scaffold the skills children need to be media readers and writers themselves. Learn evidence-based strategies and practices to start using media-based projects in your PreK-2 classroom today. The lesson you develop as a result of this coursework may be submitted as an artifact for the PBS Media Literacy Educator Certification micro-credential, Implementing Media Projects in Early Childhood.

Note: This is a self-paced course accessible for one year after enrollment, and not eligible for graduate credit.
