Free Workshop for PK-2 Teachers
Learning with Littles: Developing Cultural Awareness
Teachers! We’re excited to invite you to a live discussion with illustrator, animator, writer, director and producer, Joe Murray, who created the new PBS KIDS hit series, Let’s Go Luna.
You’ll recognize Joe’s previous work as creator of “Rocko’s Modern Life” and “Camp Lazlo.” Together with on staff anthropologist Erik Messal and cultural advisors from more than a dozen countries, Joe has a developed a fun, sweet, irreverent way for even our littlest learners to travel the world and develop global awareness.
Designed by educators, the ‘Learning with Littles’ professional learning series for Pre K-2 educators provides ideas for how to responsibly integrate media into your learning environment. In addition to meeting Joe and other members of the Let’s Go Luna team, you’ll meet other educators, who will share teaching models and strategies to help you build a culturally responsive learning environment.
Led by PBS Digital Innovator All Stars Elisabeth Bostwick and Mallory Mbalia, this session highlights exciting resources and models that can immediately be implemented in the classroom.
So join us, and come prepared with questions for producer Joe Murray for this interactive PBSKids “Live Learning” session. December 4th from 7:00pm-8:00m.
If you are unable to attend the live virtual event, we will send a recording of the event in a follow-up email to all registrants. PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for the one hour virtual professional learning event.
