Media Arts Education
MY HERO Media Arts Educators provide training and mentorship to studentsand teachers around the world with an emphasis on sharing stories about those making a positive difference in the world.
The MEDIA ARTS curricula and tutorials are freely available online, providing users of all ages with instructions on how to use new technologies to express themselves and develop important media literacy skills. Educational materials and resources are adaptable for multiple subjects and grade levels.
Through tutorials, live workshops, one-on-one trainings and direct communication via skype, our media arts educators ensure that student filmmakers and teachers receive the support they need to be successful at all stages of the production process.
MY HERO Media Arts Educators have led workshops in Morocco, Jordan, Egypt, Senegal, Netherlands, Qatar, Slovakia, Russia, China, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Nepal and across the United States.
Both locally and internationally, The MY HERO Project provides media resources and technical training to teachers of underserved youth. MY HERO distributes DVDs, books and USB drives with lesson plans to those who lack internet access. Partner organizations such as The American Film Institute provide materials to help students get started making short films honoring their own heroes.
Our Media Arts Educators make sure that all appropriate, student-made short films and media projects created for this program can be uploaded to the MY HERO website and shared with its international learning community.
