Distance learning or not, students benefit from using online tools to engage in rich and discursive interactions. Students also tend to show their best work when they know there is an authentic audience beyond the classroom. KQED Learn, a free platform for grades 6-12, is launching 5 new youth media challenges in the fall of 2020 to create a space for students to share standards-aligned media creations on a variety of different topic areas, ranging from engineering, to dance, to creative writing. Media pieces will be viewable to the public and students from around the country. Some selections will be shared on public media broadcast channels. In this session, teachers will learn how KQED Youth Media Challenge on-line resources for implementation can assist almost any classroom-- whether remote or in-person--in helping students develop digital literacy, critical thinking and creative skills. We’ll walk through one challenge and brainstorm ideas for a teacher-created mentor text and classroom implementation ideas.
