Through these free sessions, you and your students can build skills in media production and editing, explore apps to make project-based learning come to life in less time and for less cost, introduce students to GarageBand or Tinkercad, and find out about KET’s numerous online classroom resources for teaching media arts.

Program guidelines:

  • There is a limit of 30 students (plus staff/teachers) and 2 training topics per day.
  • Please submit a separate request for each desired training topic.
  • You may submit additional request forms for more than one virtual training day.
  • In most cases, the instructor will be using an iPad in leading these sessions.
