Tomorrow, Tuesday, November 29th at 12:00 noon ET, I will lead the next in the Media Education Lab’s series of webinars, “Across the Generations.”
My session, focused on tweens and teens, is titled “Fitting in, Standing Out, and Building an Identity: Middle Schoolers and Media Literacy.” You can register from the link on the series home page , or directly via Zoom.
Here is the session overview:
At the same time they are trying to fit in with their peers, tween and early-teenage youth are also working to create their own identities and stand out amongst the crowd. Media messaging — from the social media they consume to the advertisements that are targeted at them — play on this tension, forcing our youth to make choices about how to build an identity while not standing too far away from their peers. In this session, we explore the tensions that youth face as well as teaching strategies to help them become better media consumers and creators.From Media Education Lab, “Across the Generations”
