The C+MRC will be joining NAMLE to commemorate the 5th Annual National Media Literacy Week during October 21-25, 2019. We have a number of events, podcasts and resources to share. Check back regularly for updates.
Faith Rogow and Sherri Hope Culver join the C+MRC podcast for a thoughtful discussion about what adults do and do not yet know about the tweenage digital experience. Emergent issues (from S2 E1) include the economy of YouTube, authenticity and trust, and the differences (if any) between engagement online versus offline.
Join this discussion to avoid the perils and pitfalls of truthiness in health information and what we as health information-seekers can do to be more health media literate. We'll also identify the responsibilities of health news reporters and editors in conveying health-related research findings to the general public.
Flipping the script is a popular media literacy technique that reframes the ageless "happily ever after" fairy tale. This podcast episode features Rapunzel (Susan Hagen) from the irreverent musical comedy "Disenchanted!"
Dr. Vanessa E Greenwood (formerly Domine) reframes health education as a complex terrain that resides within a larger ecosystem of historical, social, political, and global economic forces. Dr. Greenwood calls for a media-literate pedagogy that empowers students to be critical consumers, creative producers, and responsible citizens.
