MediaWorks is an informational series from KET for teachers at all grade levels who want to learn more about producing video and multimedia. Older students involved in the technical aspects of video production may also be interested.

Topics covered include

  • how to connect classroom TVs, VCRs, camcorders, computers, and other equipment
  • computer-based and other video editing equipment
  • producing a standards-based school news program
  • using video in the classroom: projects and procedures
  • sharing your video: in class, in school, on local cable, and over the Internet
  • Internet and other resources: where to get help and equipment
  • emerging technologies

KET also hosts a MediaWorks listserv for teachers to share their own experiences, questions, and tips about video and multimedia tools and uses. To join the listserv, visit the sign-up page or e-mail Jeff Gray at jgray@ket.org.
