During the first two weeks in December a group of educators took part in MIA workshops in Pontypridd. The training was split into two sections; Media Literacy theory for educators and Practical workshops in digital content creation.
There have been a number of requests for follow up sessions or a repeat of the workshops for those who were unable to attend. Pontydysgu plans to run more workshops in Wales in the Spring of 2019.
