how to teach teens basic media literacy skills

The Media Literacy Roadmap was a special, one-time grant project designed to provide workshops and resources to Vancouver School Board educators and their students. The project partnered our team with Teacher-librarians and Teachers at participating schools where together we created workshops and resource materials on challenging media literacy topics, from civic engagement and social responsibility to consumerism and cyberbullying. The schools were left with a practical roadmap which they can use now and in the future when undertaking their own media literacy activities

The Integrated Media Literacy Project was a special, one-time grant project designed to provide free, high-quality, in-class professional development to Lower Mainland educators. The focus was to integrate sustainable, simple and free online media tools into the Science, Social Studies, Language Arts and Math curricula while developing students criticality and media literacy skills. Teachers were provided with the tools to deliver media education and basic technical training to their students, while simultaneously engaging students in collaborative and challenging activities that powerfully deepened their learning.
