MontanaPBS Media Lab

Join tech savvy media makers from across the state to learn the ins and outs of making media with students. MontanaPBS Media Lab is an interactive and hands-on virtual learning experience! Each session will focus on a single digital tool for making media projects with students and will begin with an introduction to the tool, some examples about how it can be used with students, step by step instructions for how to use the tool and time to explore and ask questions. Media Lab workshops are FREE and everyone who attends live has the chance to win cool prizes! Two OPI units will be granted to all participants who attend live sessions and participate! We will record Media Lab sessions for those who want to watch them later! 

  • All sessions are from 4pm-6pm MT.
