Using Media in the Classroom: An After-school K-12 Teacher Colloquium

A no-fee program of the Office of Economic Education

Incorporating visual media into the classroom enhances traditional approaches to teaching and learning economics. ​Well-chosen clips from popular TV shows and movies can effectively illustrate economic concepts, hook students into the material, and support improved student recall.

Join us for a short after-school workshop with visiting professor Jadrian Wooten. His presentation will provide practical tips on incorporating media into your teaching. He will share some of his favorite media resources and walk attendees through the process of clipping and downloading media so they can be embedded in your lessons.

Attendees will receive a professional development certificate for 1.3 hours and resources for immediate classroom use, and still be home in time for dinner!

There is no fee for this program, but seating is limited, so you must register. Scroll down to register.


Jadrian Wooten is currently an associate teaching professor at the Pennsylvania State University within the Department of Economics. His research interests are in managerial and labor related issues in sports as well as teaching pedagogy. He is also deeply involved in developing teaching resources for university and high school economics instructors.

Join us for an after-school discussion of effective use of media in the contemporary classroom.
You can get a sneak-preview of his Wooten's resources and fun style at his website.
