MontanaPBS Media Lab

MTPBS Media Lab is back! Join us as we host a series of 10 virtual workshops for middle and high school teachers. These two-hour virtual workshops are taught by the top technology integration trainers in the state of Montana and provide teachers in communities across the state with free, high quality, hands-on training. This special series of MTPBS Media Lab workshops will focus on digital storytelling and will use the themes from the popular PBS program, Finding Your Roots. State-wide partners, Humanities Montana, and the Montana Historical Society will share their resources for teaching about storytelling which will provide teachers with a rich and diverse set of tools to support their lesson planning. Montana PBS Media Lab workshops will be free to all teachers and will be held after school using Zoom. Participating teachers will have the opportunity to win prizes that will support them as they implement digital storytelling with their students for attending. All teachers who attend the live workshops will earn OPI credit for participating. The digital storytelling tools that will be shared during the workshops include Storymaker, Adobe Spark, We Video, Do Ink Green Screen, Stop Motion Studio and Pixton Edu.
