Media Literacy & Me is a program that builds an understanding of the role media plays in today’s society. While integrating media literacy and communication skills, our curriculum introduces students to alternative forms of multi-media production and cutting edge digital video technology. By bringing our technology to your classrooms, we empower your students in their own environment. Students identify a critical problem in their community through the use of “study circles” group gatherings. The solution to the problem is then directed into short thirty- second public service announcements. All completed media is posted to Youtube and aired on public broadcast television in the appropriate countries.
To date, Media Literacy & Me has educated more than 1,080 students.
