  • The rate of change going on in communications systems, structures is creating new demands –it’s time for everyone to become a multimedia producer
  • I’m interested in media literacy, which is the ability to access, analyze and evaluate, and create messages – in a wide variety of forms. Access - Analyze – Create – Reflect – Act.
  • An initiative of the PBS News Hour, PBS Student Reporting Labs is a digital and media literacy program that reaches thousands of high school students across the United States. Students learn about their communities, the environment, law and politics, the economy – and work collaboratively to create a video news segment,
  • Our research investigated learners who participated in the program: 544 students with 40% minority teens
  • Media making promtes intellectual curiosity and a sense of oneself as a civic actor in the world – an advocate
  • Learning to make media increased creative, collaboration and technical skills, improved their ability to identify the author’s purpose while watching a video, and contributed to advancing civic engagement – being interested in using the power of communication to make a difference in the world.
  • When we create, we learn.
  • The Powerful Voices was a 3-year university-school collaboration where undergraduate and graduate students in communication worked elbow-to-elbow with classroom teachers and taught media literacy in a summer program.
  • These 6-year olds watched a YouTube video, then made their own video to ask questions to the author. After seeing the children’s video, the author responded, sending them back a YouTube video. The children gained confidence in asking questions and actively used the questioning process to learn.

  • Children in Grade 3 turned the teacher’s lesson upside down when they started asking questions during their teacher’s carefully planning fairy-tale lesson. They transformed the activity into learning about homelessness in their community – why it occurs and what can be done about it.
  • Digital and media literacy helps children and teens learn to use the power of communication – as both creators and consumers. Media literacy is like driver’s training for participating in the s1st century.
