The Kentucky Educational Televisiion (KET) Network Center welcomed around 40 fifth-grade students from Lincoln County’s Waynesburg Elementary School for Media Lab Workshops.
The KET Media Lab Workshops offer students hands-on training on basic video production and editing, use of iPads and smart phones to create classroom multi-media projects and more.
KET Media Lab workshops are free to Kentucky public and private schools, home schools, community service organization and government social agencies. They support Kentucky and national academic standards as well as ISTE and national technology standards and are approved by the Kentucky Department of Education for K-12 teacher professional development training.
During their field trip to KET’s network center in Lexington, student groups also had the opportunity to tour the KET production facilities to get a behind-the-scenes look at how KET programs are made.
A grant from the Kentucky Department of Education provided travel reimbursement for teachers and students in grades 4-12 at Kentucky public schools who scheduled a KET Media Lab workshop during the 2016-2017 school year.
