Make Media Camps in July 2018: Kansas City, Oklahoma City and Dallas

I’m excited to announce the availability of three upcoming “Make Media Camps” for PK-12 teachers and university faculty in July 2018 in Kansas City, Oklahoma City, and Dallas. The past five summers, I have led and co-led 3 day iPad Media Camp workshops with my wife, Shelly Fryer. This summer, we are continuing to iterate with this professional development model by offering one day workshops focused on making media with iPads as well as Chromebooks. The Kansas City workshop will be Friday, July 6th, the Oklahoma City workshop will be Friday, July 13th, and the Dallas workshop will be Friday, July 27th. More details, including the workshop agenda and registration links via EventBrite, are available on You can also follow @MakeMediaCamp on Twitter for updates.

The full workshop description is:

Make Media Camp (@MakeMediaCamp) is a one day, hands-on workshop designed to inspire and equip educators to facilitate student media projects using iPads and/or Chromebooks for enriched assessment. Make Media Camps are led by Dr. Wesley Fryer (@wfryer) and Shelly Fryer (@sfryer). Participants should BYOD (bring your own device) to camp and install required apps / extensions / programs in advance. Participating teachers are students in a fully technology integrated classroom during the workshop, and collaborate with others to create different media projects. A Seesaw classroom of student digital learning journals is used by participants throughout Make Media Camp to share media products and support classmates in their learning.

The agenda for Make Media Camp includes learning to create and facilitate student creation of multiple media projects and media activities. These include:

  1. A photo collage
  2. A narrated photo
  3. An infopic
  4. A “Goose Chase” media scavenger hunt
  5. A paper-slide video
  6. A multimedia eBook

In addition to iPad Media Camp, Make Media Camp builds on the “Show with Media: What Do You Want to Create Today?” website and digital literacy framework started by Dr. Wes Fryer in 2013. If you’re interested in learning practical skills and strategies for effectively integrating technology in your classroom, this is the professional development workshop for you. Registration for this 1 day learning experience is $99 and available online via EventBrite.

If you have questions or are interested in hosting a Make Media Camp workshop at your own school, please contact Wes Fryer.
