Would you like to take your students to Zion National Park in Utah to study geography or Paris to study fine art? In the same day? For almost no cost? Teachers participating in KET’s Multimedia Professional Development Days, using green screen technology, learned how to make that happen.
KET celebrated its 10th year of the event with 158 school teachers and staff learning about video production, web conferencing, social media and ways to foster creativity.
For me, this is a two-for-one event. I do my normal work of capturing teachers learning and participating just as I would with students in a classroom. The bonus is I always learn a thing or two about my profession while I’m there.
