Kentucky Educational Television’s Media Lab was recently honored with a NETA (National Educational Telecommunications Association) Award for Instructional Media-Engaged Learning. The award was presented Jan. 21 at NETA’s annual professional development conference in Salt Lake City.
KET’s Media Lab offers hands-on student workshops, provided on site at KET’s Lexington studios, on topics including basic video production, basic video editing, green screen effects, Minecraft for education and more.
Media Lab introduces students to important college and career-ready skills to assist them in becoming successful and responsible content creators. Students are also able to tour the KET studios, meeting and speaking with KET production staff and crew in a visit that exposes them to an array of telecommunications career pathways.
In 2018, KET’s Media Lab was used by more than 3,400 Kentucky students and teachers in 101 school districts across the state.
KET’s Media Lab is supported in part by a media arts grant from the Kentucky Department of Education.
