ETV Education’s Educator Guest Blogger Series, featuring South Carolina educators recognized for innovation in the classroom, continue to provide interesting and relevant ideas for SC teachers! Our guest bloggers include additional PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator winners, educators who earn the new PBS Media Literacy Certification, and other educators recognized for their skilled use of technology in the classroom.

The blogger series serves as an additional platform to our Carolina Classroom television and web series to elevate and share SC educators’ voices and the accomplished work they are doing.

The PBS LearningMedia Digital Innovator program rewards tech-savvy K-12 educators from across the country who are serving as leaders in the education technology space and incorporating digital media in classrooms to promote student engagement and achievement. The annual program has recognized and honored 19 SC educators to date.

The PBS Media Literacy Educator Certification by KQED recognizes educators who excel in creating and implementing instruction with media, and provides support to help all teachers accelerate these skills. Educators who exemplify strong media literacy competencies are invited to submit a portfolio of work demonstrating their achievements. And, free media literacy courses are available on KQED Teach for educators who need support in building the competencies which include the ability to create original content using multiple media production techniques, share original media on a variety of online platforms designed to reach specific audiences, and implement lessons that help students foster media skills and more. Available courses: Finding & Validating Information Online; Understanding Copyright & Fair Use; Video Storytelling Essentials; Designing Presentations; Safety and Privacy in a Participatory Culture; How to Manage and Assess Media Projects; and more.
