Public TV Station Looking for Engaged Teachers for Advisory Board
April 20, 2012 KQED Public Media is looking for highly engaged high school social studies teachers who are interested in becoming members of the KQED Do Now advisory board. KQED Do Now is a weekly activity for high school students to explore current issues using Twitter for learning. It is an excellent opportunity for educators to integrate civic engagement and digital citizenship skills into the curriculum.
The station is looking for 15 people who will represent the diverse range of educators and for teachers who are open to the idea of having their students use mobile devices in the classroom for this project. This advisory board will be held for six weeks between May-June of this year. Those who get accepted and participate will be given $150 honorarium at the conclusion of the project.
