Brief Description:
Learn to infuse your curriculum with deep learning about digital media environments, as well as practical digital media production. These sessions will include selected revised Grades 1-12 curricula, including Health and Phys Ed.
Detailed Description:
Media studies integrate naturally because media communications underpin each and every curricula. They also are natural complements to collaborative inquiry. Media consumption and production are the same sides of the communications experience as reading and writing, each playing a key role in learning.
