Educator Zone

Over the years different youth facilitation teams have created workshop outlines and educational resources to accompany the videos they’ve created. They’ve been designed to deepen learning about the issues addressed in the videos, and set the table for courageous conversations about equity and justice in classroom settings. The evolving Educator Zone is a space to share and easily access these materials.What’s here now is the tip of the iceberg. More resources coming soon.

Due to the pandemic, Access to Media Education Society is not booking workshops for the time being. AMES is currently translating existing workshops, and creating new online versions to better serve youth. Contact for more information on when online workshops will be available.

Learn more about the key elements of a typical AMES workshop, and the thinking behind them to support you in building your own:

"Working with AMES, I witnessed marginalized, urban and rural youth coming together to share space in meaningful, critical, and honest ways. Their stories, lived experiences and voices were heard and honoured."
