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.
