MediaKron grants

MediaKron Special Project

ATAB invites faculty to submit a proposal for developing a MediaKron project and to join a cohort of faculty developing similar projects. MediaKron is a web-based toolkit for digital thinking and storytelling developed at Boston College for Boston College faculty. In addition to developing a project, faculty will commit to participating in a cohort to collaborate and discuss pedagogical uses of MediaKron and ways in which it can enhance teaching and learning. Participating faculty will receive a $5,000 stipend, and additional funds will be available to the cohort to support project materials and resources as needed. The cohort will provide a report at the end of the project outlining findings that will inform faculty and student use of MediaKron as it continues to evolve as an instructional tool.

More information on MediaKron and examples of its use can be found on the MediaKron website at

If you are interested in developing a MediaKron project or would like to learn more, please contact the ATAB Coordinator, Stacia Pathiakis at

The deadline for the submission of MediaKron proposals was April 15, 2015 and has passed.
