The New York State Educational Media Technology Association (EMTA) has announced the opening of the application process for its annual Media Literacy Project Grant. Each year, the EMTA provides up to two awards in the amount of $1,250 for certified educators in NYS who are working with PreK-12 students on media literacy.
The grant supports educators who provide resources and services that correlate to state and national learning standards for instructional excellence promoting media literacy, and provides funds for research projects or demonstration projects that can be replicated in other areas across the state and nation.
Examples of eligible projects include a film literacy course after school, using video effectively in your lesson plans, and learning about the effective creation and use of media in student work. Descriptions of last years grant awards are listed on the EMTA website.
