Media Literacy/Art Educator and Independent Producer

Workshops & Presentations

Many of these are offered as two-day workshops. They can be easily adapted for longer or shorter programs, depending upon your organization’s needs.

Perfect Partners: Linking Art Education and Media Literacy

This workshop explores the key parallels between art and media education for the k-12 setting. Visual literacy has been a primary goal of art education for decades and is an important aspect of media literacy. Television, film, print, websites, and other digital forms rely on a visual language. Art educators, already well trained in visual communication, are uniquely qualified to foster visual and media literacy. Whether guiding young people through the process of critically examining or creating media, art classrooms are often the perfect setting for media education. Educators of other disciplines will also benefit since art and media studies may be readily integrated with a range of subjects–-including social studies and English/language arts. This session invites educators to reframe their perspective and employ a fresh approach to their teaching.

Why Media Matters: Media Literacy in the K-12 Classroom

This course includes an overview of media literacy basics to provide  educators with a clear understanding of what media literacy is and how to begin teaching it. This interactive presentation includes the following: principles of media literacy; understanding the language of media; critical viewing; placing media in a socio-cultural context, and linking media literacy and other disciplines like art,  social studies and language arts. Participants will have a greater understanding of how media literacy intersects with a vast array of topics and will recognize ongoing opportunities for connections in the classroom.

Creating Media Literate Youth

This workshop is useful for educators,  youth workers, parents or anyone concerned about the impact of media on today’s youth. Young people are bombarded by media messages 24/7. Many use multiple media forms at one time— while watching TV, they are texting and updating their Facebook pages—making this generation the most media saturated ever. While few adults will be as agile with new technology as young people, we can help them better understand the value and challenges of living in a media-dominated world. This session addresses the pervasiveness of media and how to develop more media literate youth.

The Basics of Critical Viewing

Learning how to look at media critically is an essential skill in contemporary culture when powerful images and messages interface with highly sophisticated and rapidly changing technology. This interactive seminar teaches a user-friendly approach to critical viewing that can be modified for learners of any age or level. Borrowing from approaches used in art criticism, participants will leave with a new, effective skill set. This session expands notions of critical thinking and is useful for teachers of any discipline-but especially art, music, language arts, English and communication.

Critical Viewing, Advertising and Adbusting

Advertising is designed to reach even the youngest viewer; therefore, this offering is open to educators at all levels, elementary through secondary. Advertising and marketing are powerful forces within contemporary culture. Understand how advertisingworks and how to address it in the classroom with teenagers or elementarystudents. This lively and interactive course includes screenings, activities, discussion and plenty of ideas to take back to the classroom. This approach to critical viewing promises to be fun and provides user-friendly skills for learners at all levels and stages.

Creating and Using Animation in the K-12 Classroom

Creating  media is an effective way for young people to understand the media literacy principle that all media are carefully constructed. Making films engages young people in the absorbing and labor-intensive process of film, television and other media production. Animation production allows for easy integration of art making and art concepts. Participants will view a wide range of animated work (student and professional), including claymation, flipbooks, pixilation and paper cut-out. They will learn the basics of producing animation and have the needed skills and knowledge to present animation production to their students.

Media and Bullying: Connecting Popular Culture and Youth Bullying

Bullying is a growing problem throughout K-12 education. Whether through  eye rolling, chronic gossip, a vicious cyber-campaign, or overt physical aggression, it hinders the educational process and student progress. This course examines how our powerful popular culture supports bullying behaviors and a bullying mindset–more important, it will address how this media can also be used to challenge youth bullying. Participants will explore how both popular and independent media can help us better understand and address bullying in ours schools. Other areas addressed include cyber bullying and the impact of gender stereotyping on bullying.

Girls, Media & Bullying

This workshop outlines the dynamics and behaviors of youth bullying and then narrows its focus to female bullying. We examine theories about how girls sometimes bully differently than boys. We will look at the role of media in shaping the identities of girls and women. We will specifically consider the impact of the limiting and stereotypical female depictions generated throughout commercial media. Finally, we explore how this contributes to the issue of female bullying and conversely, how this very same media can be used to challenge bullying.

Beyond the Box: Using Independent Film and Video in the Classroom

The session’s presenter is an art & media educator, as well as a documentary producer. She will show excerpts from her award-winning documentary, PicturePerfect, along with several other works. This presentation will showcase a rich selection of independent media and guide educators in locating and using this rich, diverse body of work. Independent media is often more innovative in terms of both its form and content. It is an ideal arena for critical consideration by arts and language arts educators. Often using highly engaging and artistic techniques, independent media frequently takes a fresh look at off-the-beaten-path and/or challenging topics. Yet like its commercial counterparts, it often tells compelling stories or lifts the spirit by showing what is possible. Independent media typically lacks the promotional and marketing support enjoyed by commercial media like the major motion picture and television industries.
