ExpiredMedia Literacy is Fun! (Gr. K-12)

Course Code: SI-6

Part 1 – August 17, 2021; Part 2 – August 18, 2021


In this two-part OTF Summer Institute, participants will delve deeply into the critically important topic of media literacy as we explore ways to help students become wise consumers of media and responsible producers of their own media. Together, participants will investigate practical strategies to embed media literacy into their programs. We will learn how to integrate critical thinking about technology and digital media across the Kindergarten – Grade 12 curricula. Participants will explore media production and the purposeful use of a variety of digital tools (including Google Workspace, digital production tools, social media and online learning platforms). Participants will learn to co-create learning environments that engage, inspire, build students’ digital literacy skills, and design learning experiences that reflect students’ experiences. This Summer Institute is facilitated by members of the Association for Media Literacy (AML), a subject/division association in Ontario
