The Montgomery Media Arts Institute is dedicated to advancing media literacy education through media arts (film and podcasting) curriculum, teacher professional development, and youth advocacy projects that address environmental issues, promote social justice, and encourage civic engagement.
WHAT WE DO:
The Institute uses digital arts as an avenue to enhance teaching and learning. We focus on filmmaking and podcasting, facilitating or helping teachers facilitate short, subject-related media pieces that motivate students and deepen learning. This process of learning these media literacy skills is media education, and our Institute serves as a media literacy resource. We offer individual or group courses and professional development training.

The Montgomery Media Arts Institute Brings Something New to the Table
We want to help keep education relevant and prepare young people to be active, confident, articulate, responsible citizens. Telling stories is a personal and powerful way to share what they are studying and learning. Sharing their knowledge with the world through film and podcasts is a necessary literacy. It builds technical skills. It is also an avenue of expression and a path to engagement and activism.
We celebrate students sharing their voice and perspectives on important issues. We celebrate students and teachers using technologies meaningfully, collaboratively. We support students and teachers with a fresh breath of air.
Classrooms need contact with the outside world to bring life, laughter, cool ideas, new faces, different perspectives in and out.
We come in; stories go out.
