Teachers are spending a week of their summer vacations to learn new skills in scholastic journalism. On July 19, 18 Oklahoma educators gathered at the University of Oklahoma’s Gaylord College for a five-day Oklahoma Scholastic Media Initiative workshop. The program is funded by a grant from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation in partnership with Oklahoma Scholastic Media. Workshop participants are trained in cutting-edge, multimedia concepts in scholastic journalism by Gaylord College staff and industry professionals. In addition to the free professional development, 14 of the teachers received a total of $75,000 to start or improve their online media publications at their school.
