PBS Media Literacy Academy | WSKGWSKG


The WSKG recruits educators for a local cohort of the PBS Media Literacy Academy.

This group of educators will work with WSKG Education staff to work towards the PBS Media Literacy Educator certification.

The aim of the WSKG Media Literacy Academy is support and training

With media literacy and the creation of media content, you establish connections with other educators, receive support from WSKG Education and PBS employees and work together on micro-qualifications. As many of our local educators teach or host learning experiences in virtual space, we will try to help educators use as much existing content, lessons and resources that they have already created to meet the micro-qualifications.

This option is open to all educators in the Greater Southern Tier region. An educator is anyone who works directly with students – could be in a traditional school setting, museum, extracurricular or extracurricular program, library, home school, etc. Download the printable flyer (see image above) here.
