Teacher workshop participants viewing their group iPad video project.
KET Education Consultants Brian Spellman, Amy Grant, Larry Moore, and Helen Morrison traveled to Murray State University on July 15-17 to present at the Department of Education’s Developing Standards-Based Digital Content for Next Generation Learning professional development program (year 2). The event was coordinated for area K-12 teacher professional development by Dr. Yuejin Xu and Dr. George Patmor.
MSU’s educator participants in the program were a very enthusiastic and creative group. KET’s education consultants delivered day-long multimedia workshops in stop-motion animation and basic video production for the classroom. KET ‘s Jeff Gray also joined the group to help give a workshop on using iPads and iPhones for school video production.

KATE (The Kentucky Academy of Technology Education) is also based at Murray State. Director Ron Milliner, Patti Oakley, and others at KATE produce useful education resources from their offices at MSU, including recent training for Kentucky educators in using the newly statewide-implemented Microsoft Office 365 software suite of tools.
Kentucky schools can contact their regional KET education consultant for free in-school workshops in using many KET multimedia resources. For Kentucky schools and public service organizations within driving distance of KET’s Network Center in Lexington, KET also offers free workshops in multimedia production and related topics in its KET Media Lab.
