BREAKING NEWS! New speaker series delivered daily
Follow my new speaker series, Media Makers, as I have conversations with Ladue High School alumni now working in the media business, as well as some of my professional media maker friends. Using Zoom, students will be invited to participate live to ask questions, or watch the video after. They will be asked to research important facts about these professionals, blog about what they learned, and then find one to two stories these professionals produced, or collaborated on, to write about in their blog, along with an image(s) related to the story. Follow new episodes of Media Makers daily.
Broadcast lessons and activities for students while at home
While schools across America close, many broadcast journalism and video production teachers have been left wondering what to do. While many students have phones, there is a large population who don't. They also may not have their sophisticated editing software like they have at school. Therefore, I have compiled a number of resources from teachers sharing on Facebook, Listservs, Twitter, and Instagram. Click HERE to dive into some ideas which may work for your students.

What's new with me?
This has been a crazy busy semester. I have updated this site quote a bit. Make sure to visit the MEDIA page and its new sub pages, PODCASTS and VIDEOS.
I did the 10-year photo challenge! I encourage you to do the same to reflect on how much has changed in the past decade. The changes for me in the past 10 years have been a true roller coaster, but I am happy to continue to provide quality, free resources to teachers around the world.
Finally, I recently recorded a podcast with @The_Tech_Lady Kim Mattina where we discussed the power of iMovie, Clips and Final Cut Pro X. You can listen below or on the PODCASTS page.
