2012 Chicago Journalism, Art and Media (C-JAM) Educator Technology Fund

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

The C-JAM fund isn't just an equipment grant, but an opportunity to receive the support, training, and knowledge to engage youth in deeper and more thoughtful practices in media arts and journalism.

Education Development Center, Inc. (EDC), is pleased to announce the 2012 Chicago Journalism, Art and Media (C-JAM) Educator Equipment Fund. The goal of this fund, sponsored by the McCormick Foundation’s Journalism Program, is to help educators gain access to the technology they need to better integrate journalism and media making into learning. 

Educators will receive equipment packages as well as professional development and training to support their efforts. Potential applicants are educators who currently incorporate media production in their classrooms or in their youth programs or are highly motivated to get started.
