The Corporation for Public Broadcasting has been funding a Professional Learning Community for 8 public media stations to convene, brainstorm, and collaborate on innovative ways to make media with and for youth. Each station is exploring unique partnerships with youth in their communities, resulting in media that reaches a large audience. This work promotes youth voice while also providing opportunities for youth to be contributors to the programs at their local public media station. KQED, PBS SoCal, Wisconsin Public TV, and WGBH will engage in an open roundtable discussion about the work they are doing with and for youth around creating quality content that does not suck. Attendees will help these public media stations work through obstacles in their programs with youth, brainstorm effective strategies for media-making in partnership with youth, and incorporate best practices from Connected Learning research and programming. Come and be part of engaging youth voice in public media at this open forum and workshop. You will have the opportunity to contribute to youth programming that reaches millions of people.
