Using Multi-Cultural Media in the Classroom


Children are visual learners and using media is a powerful learning tool. However teachers seldom receive direct instruction in best practices for the use of media resources. Make sure your faculty has access to these cutting-edge strategies. Help them learn how to integrate media into lesson plans that will boost student participation and educational outcomes. 

Workshop Overview:
  • Introduction to 21st century learning skills and their impact on learning
  • Learning standards that are addressed by teaching with media                                         
  • Rubrics for using film/media to foster cross-cultural understanding
  • How to achieve multiple learning outcomes from showing a single short film


These dynamic techniques foster strong academic skills, promote thinking, reasoning and teamwork skills and increase proficiency in using technology. 

The result:  better learning and happy kids!
