This presentation is for P16 teachers who would like to integrate global education, 21st Century skills and media literacy into their curriculum. It outlines my experiences as a Fulbright Scholar teaching multicultural education, media literacy and educational technology in Turkmenistan; offers creative strategies for producing media with youth; and showcases digital stories. The participants deconstructed and assessed the national and local curriculum; presented their projects such as media projects reflecting not only on their stories but also international perspectives and documented their stories in order to articulate the realities of conditions in schools through their research, analysis, and dialog. Through the media literacy activities, they designed curricula, and programs for improving student outcomes, also they gained alternative point of view on their environment and renew interest and commitment to global understanding.
