In this 60-minute webinar, get started with KQED Youth Media Challenge: Let’s Talk About Election 2020, an audio and video commentary challenge co-hosted with PBS NewsHour Student Reporting Labs and the National Writing Project. Students create and share evidence-based, persuasive audio or video commentaries, and view and respond to each other’s work. The webinar will focus on starting the challenge in a distance-learning context, accessing KQED’s ready-to-use resources and analyzing youth-produced commentaries already on the site.
The Let’s Talk About Election 2020 Challenge is hosted on KQED Learn where students can also participate in online discussions with peers from around the country and respond with text, graphic, video or audio.
KQED Learn is a powerful addition to almost any educator’s online distance learning toolbox, complete with peer-to-peer activities, scaffolds and assessment strategies.
