PBS Media Literacy Educator Certification Academy

Exciting Opportunity for Educators

January-June 2023

The Ohio Ed Techs are again recruiting teachers to be part of the local PBS Media Literacy Educator Certification Academy!.

What’s Different for 2023?

This year’s sessions are offered asynchronously and will allow teachers the flexibility to complete projects on their own time. Ohio PBS Ed Tech consultants will be providing recorded lessons and follow up support for teachers to complete projects for submission for microcredentials through a Google Classroom. Participants seeking graduate credit will use credential submissions as evidence.
