Our 10th annual KET Multimedia Professional Development Days event was held this last July 9 and 10, 2013. We at KET again enjoyed presenting fun and useful information on school multimedia production equipment, methods, and related topics to K-20 educators from across Kentucky. We’ve posted some of the presenter handout and session materials online at the project web page.
