OSM grant encourages teacher interactions

By Derrick Miller and Haley Wilson

Oklahoma Scholastic Media brought together 18 Oklahoma teachers for advanced training in journalism media.

Teachers received special focus on videography, photography and editing. The teachers engaged in hands-on activities that can be taken back to use in their classrooms.

The training began with a weekend in September and ended with a weekend in October. The weekend trainings included interactions with the University of Oklahoma student body and the Norman community.

OSM selected teachers for Oklahoma Scholastic Media grants for either startup or improvement. Grants ranged from $1,000 to $7,000 and included the training at Gaylord College. The 2016 grant applications are due April 2016.
