    6. 6. + From the Constitutions (Rule) of the Daughters of St. Paul  25. There are two main types of media formation and education projects important to the Daughters of St. Paul.  One is the formation of professional and religious communicators and apostolic opinion leaders to use media for the work of evangelization.  The second is the education and formation of the audience to critically discern the messages communicated through traditional mass media and emerging forms of social communication. (1984)
    7. 7. + What is media literacy? What is media mindfulness? Media literacy education provides a framework and pedagogy for the new literacy needed for living, working, and citizenship for the 21st century.
    8. 8. + Life skills… Media literacy education paves the way to mastering the skills required for lifelong learning in a constantly changing world E. Thoman and T. Jolls, 2004

    10. 10. +
    11. 11. + Quest for meaning  Media education is a quest for meaning. Much of the value of a quest lies in the search itself as in the achievement of the goal.  Chris Worsnop in Screening Images
    12. 12. + Media Mindfulness Media Mindfulness is media literacy education in the context of faith formation.
    13. 13. + Media Mindfulness Media mindfulness expands media literacy education to include teaching, learning, and forming those with whom we share faith.
    14. 14. + Media Mindfulness Media and popular culture are considered within the context of Gospel or biblical and community values in addition to the human and democratic values that characterize media literacy.
    15. 15. + Media Mindfulness Media Mindfulness develops an understanding of the power of media and how they influence our lives and faith.
    16. 16. + 1. Become media literate 2. Make media the subject of catechesis 3. Advocate for pro-social media 4. Make media 5. Use media in catechesis
    17. 17. + What Media Literacy is NOT  Media 'bashing' is NOT media literacy, however media literacy sometimes involves criticizing the media.  Merely producing media is NOT media literacy, although media literacy should include media production.  Just teaching with videos or other mediated content is NOT media literacy; one must also teach about media.  Only looking for good messages or “bad” messages; media literacy is about understanding and making meaning
    18. 18. + What Media Literacy is not, cont.  Simply looking for political agendas, stereotypes or misrepresentations is NOT media literacy; there should also be an exploration of the systems making those representations appear "normal.”  Looking at a media message or a mediated experience from just one perspective is NOT media literacy because media should be examined from multiple positions.  Media Literacy does NOT mean "don't watch;" it means "watch carefully, think critically."  With thanks to Renee Hobbs, Chris Worsnop, Neil Andersen, Jeff Share and Scott Sullivan

    25. 25. + Media Mindfulness Media mindfulness is a strategy based in media literacy that uses inquiry (asking questions) to  Become aware  Establish communication  Talk about what matters: values  Involve the child’s moral imagination
    26. 26. + Media Smart Family 1. Talk to your children from the day you bring them home from the hospital so they will know that communication in your family is normal.

See what happens when he cleans his room?  Suggest specific comments or behaviors  Label: that’s a dog  Ask the child to retell the story  Relate life to stories; connect to life; tying to kids lives: that’s like when we went to grandma’s house and had ice cream on the way
