Media Literacy & Me is a program that builds an understanding of the role media plays in today’s society. While integrating media literacy and production tools, our video literacy curriculum empowers young people to utilize their first amendment rights. Our curriculum will introduce 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 to learn about their culture and 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.
