TEACHERS TRANSFORM:

MEDIA FLUENCY PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

ABOUT TEACHERS TRANSFORM

Building Media Literacy to Empower all Learners

Teachers Transform is a job-embedded professional development for New Mexico English language arts and social studies middle school teachers. It is designed to enhance learning across disciplines by incorporating traditional and new media literacy into the curriculum. The program will research  rural vs. urban and low-tech vs. high-tech to get a full scope of NM classrooms. 

 

A training -to be held in Albuquerque- will provide the foundation to build and implement a meaningful and localized approach to meet the needs of each community. About 50-60 NM educators will go through a process that equips them with skills, knowledge, confidence and experience to integrate media literacy pedagogical frameworks and hands-on play into the curriculum. 

 

The media literacy program has critical thinking, multi-literacies and 21st century learning at its core.
