Sign Up Today! Online Workshop Request Form

Thanks to a grant from the Kentucky Department of Education, KET is offering travel reimbursement for media arts workshops at the KET Media Lab during the 2016-2017 school year. The goal of this program is to help schools implement the new
Kentucky Arts Standards in Media Arts.

At Media Arts Workshops in the KET Media Lab you can build your and your students’ skills in video production and editing; explore using iPads, iPhones, and apps to make classroom multimedia projects in less time and for less cost; introduce students to Minecraft educational gaming; and find out about KET’s numerous online classroom resources for teaching media arts.

Workshops are conducted by KET education consultants and other KET production professionals. They are FREE—and now your transportation costs to the KET Network Center in Lexington are covered too!
